Define That Term #315

Dictionary_2 Last week's term was specification, which is defined as:

In patent law, the narrative portion of a patent application, which includes descriptions of the purpose, structure and operation of the invention, as well as a discussion of any relevant prior art. Essentially, the specification must provide enough information about the invention so that a person proficient in the area of expertise involved in the invention could build and operate it without having to be overly creative.

No one guessed this time around.

Today's term is:

estoppel in pais.

As always, no dictionaries.
