LQP Ask The Patent attorney: LONG PATENT CLAIMS ARE BAD, RIGHT?
Summary: Craige lays out how a ruler is the wrong measuring stick for claims.

Craige explodes this fallacy with case studies about how a long claim can be ideal or a raw deal, depending on its structure. Craige exposes the secret ingredient that is essential for every claim, irrespective of its word count.
