Invention Analysis and Claiming presents a comprehensive approach to analyzing inventions and capturing them in a sophisticated set of patent claims. A central theme is the importance of using the problem-solution paradigm to identify the "inventive concept" before the claim-drafting begins. The book's teachings are grounded in "old school" principles of patent practice that, before now, have been learned only on the job from supervisors and mentors.

The number of patent infringement lawsuits filed in United States district courts has continually increased. Such litigation results when the protection of inventions or the entry of a new product into the market is not properly managed. This practical book provides a well-considered plan for invention protection and management that can be used effectively to avoid expensive, time-consuming, and sometimes company-killing patent infringement litigation. However, because not all patent infringement litigation can be avoided, the second part of this important book explains how to manage patent infringement litigation should it become necessary. This book is perfect for corporate counsel and executives, and provides information on the management of invention protection; the characteristics of a high quality patent; avoiding patent infringement litigation from an offensive and defensive perspective; how to evaluate a patent before litigation: and how to make a patent ready for negotiation. settlement, or litigation. In addition, multiple appendices have been added to provide examples of documents used in invention protection and patent infringement litigation.

CICLing 2003 ( was the 4th annual Conference on Intelligent Text Processing and Computational Linguistics. It was intended to provide a balanced view of the cutting-edge developments in both the theoretical foundations of computational linguistics and the practice of natural language text processing with its numerous applications. A feature of CICLing conferences is their wide scope that covers nearly all areas of computational linguistics and all aspects of natural language processing applications. The conference is a forum for dialogue between the specialists working in these two areas. This year we were honored by the presence of our keynote speakers Eric Brill (Microsoft Research, USA), Aravind Joshi (U. Pennsylvania, USA), Adam Kilgarriff (Brighton U., UK), and Ted Pedersen (U. Minnesota, USA), who delivered excellent extended lectures and organized vivid discussions. Of 92 submissions received, after careful reviewing 67 were selected for presentation; 43 as full papers and 24 as short papers, by 150 authors from 23 countries: Spain (23 authors), China (20), USA (16), Mexico (13), Japan (12), UK (11), Czech Republic (8), Korea and Sweden (7 each), Canada and Ireland (5 each), Hungary (4), Brazil (3), Belgium, Germany, Italy, Romania, Russia and Tunisia (2 each), Cuba, Denmark, Finland and France (1 each).
