U.S. patent law Edit

A dependent claim is a patent claim that refers back to (depends on) and further limits a preceding dependent or independent claim. A dependent claim must include every limitation of the claim from which it depends. A dependent claim must be read as if it contained its own express recitals plus the recitals of every claim or claims on which it depends.
