Prosecuting your patent
September/October 2006 (vol. 26 no. 5)
pp. 88, 87
Philip G. Emma, IBM T.J. Watson Research Center
It's a near certainty that the first office action on your patent application will be a rejection. However, a patent application lets you deal with a single person: the patent examiner. You will not have to juggle multiple reviewers who independently insist upon mutually conflicting changes. Philip Emma offers advice for prosecuting your patent through to allowance, the granting of your patent.
Index Terms:
patent application, patent allowance, prosecuting a patent
