Target Group

To provide attendees with an understanding of what a patent claim is and why it is significant. We will explore the significance of the terms used in claims, the types of claims and how claims are infringed. Attendees will learn how to determine if their product falls within the scope of a patent claim and also how it is possible to 'design around' a patent claim.


  • What is a patent claim?
  • What are the different types of patent claim and how are each infringed?
  • What is the significance of the claim wording and how is a claim infringed? 
  • What does ‘equivalence’ mean and how is it relevant? 
  • How do you design around a patent claim and how do you mitigate against competitors designing around your own patents?
