The book shows how to communicate effectively with patent lawyers and patent examiners, teaching the language of "legalese." This book is unique in covering both the early invention process to final patent drafting to provide high quality patents in technologies. Key features include: How to become an inventor, how to invent, to what is invention; How to write an invention disclosure to writing a patent; Examples of utility, design, and plant patents; How to prepare the background section, brief listing of figures, detailed description of the invention, claims, abstract to artwork; Using patent search engines; Writing independent and dependent claims; Analyzing office actions of the US and European patent offices; How to write an office action response and amending claims; and, Examples of Office Action responses, preliminary amendments, to notice of allowance response; Invention and Patenting is the first book by an engineer and inventor from a technologist's point of view.
