India: To Apply Or Not To Apply for a Patent of Addition?

The scope of improvement is infinite, precisely because perfection is unattainable”.

Often, after filing a patent for an invention, additional modifications and improvement of the invention surface. The improvements or modifications may take place as a result of further experimentation to improve the invention, or as a result of feedback received from the industry.  

In such a scenario, where the invention is already protected by a patent, the improvement or modification over the original patented product or process may be protected by a “Patent of Addition” in India.

“Patent of Addition” falls under Sections 54, 55 and 56 of the Patents Act, 1970. A patent of addition facilitates the addition of new subject matter in the form of modifications and improvements to an existing disclosure of the parent application, while retaining the priority date for claims based on the original disclosure by the patentee.

Filing a new patent application is another option, but the priority date of the new patent will be different from that of the previously filed application (or parent application). The claims of the patent of addition inherit the priority date of the parent application. As a result, claims in the patent of addition can have a priority date that is before the filing of the patent of addition.

However, the applicant must be the same for the parent patent application and the patent of addition. If the improvement or modification involves an additional applicant, a patent of addition may not be pursued.

A patent of addition effectively enables an applicant to make incremental improvements and add embodiments that might not justify their own patent applications without needing to file parallel applications. More specifically, the applicant need not pay a renewal fee for a patent of addition, thereby saving costs.

A patent of addition is a suitable and attractive option for applicants to add additional features onto previously filed patent applications, it may not always be the right tool for the job, it has its own disadvantages.

In contrast to the perception that the patent of addition inherits the priority date of a parent application, certain claims may have their own priority dates. Only the claims fully supported by the disclosure of the parent patent application are entitled to the priority date of the parent patent application.

A term of a patent is 20 years from the date of filing of patent application and the term of patent of addition is limited to its parent application’s term. For example, a patent of addition filed in 2017 that claims priority to a parent application filed in 2013 will expire in 2033, as opposed to 2037 if a new patent application was filed instead of patent of addition application. This reduced patent tenure might result in loss of significant revenue from products or methods that pertains to the new patent claims supported by the patent of addition.

Further, introduction of new claims in the patent of addition may leave the door open for an opponent to assert the invalidity of parent application if the disclosure in the parent application do not justify the additional claims. In situations where support for the new subject matter of the patent of addition is not clearly set out in the parent application, it may be advantageous to file a separate application to utilise the distinctiveness of the new claims, and to obtain the benefit of a full patent term.

Accordingly, a patent applicant must look at all the pros and cons before making a decision to apply for  a patent of addition.

Patent Searching RESEARCH by Genius Geeks

Patent Search: Determine how prior art is similar or different?

can you copyright an idea or concept how to patent a business idea in india how to pitch an idea to a company and get paid

Patent filing requires “money”. Patents have filing fees, professional fees and maintenance fees over the life of the patent and a large amount of money is required for the defence of the patent. A Patent search is carried out inorder to ascertain that the patent generates enough financial gains to justify the cost associated with its filing and the time and expense of moving forward with a patent application is a worthwhile.

For inventors, searching prior-art in the form of patents filed and granted should be the first step in the patent application process. Patent search gives an opportunity to discover which aspects of your invention can be claimed and high quality patent searches can help inventors anticipate about the scope of any patent claim. Without a patent search an inventor will describe the various  aspects of an invention as if they are equally important which won’t be the case.  

A patent is lot more than just a document. Careful assessment of patents found in the search report is tedious but the inventors who really take the time to read the key patents found in the search know its importance in contributing to the decision about whether to move forward with the patent application and then ultimately to meaningfully contribute to the preparation of a patent application.

Unfortunately, a lot of inventors only give a hasty and not thorough review of the patents found, thereby missing a great opportunity to use the prior art found to figure out what is most likely unique and patentable. Inventors perhaps look at the titles, the pictures, maybe read the Abstract and get overwhelmed.

For this reason inventors frequently choose to hire a patent professional or patent attorney for carrying out patent search. The inventor has the detailed knowledge of the invention, and is in the best position to identify the similarity and differences of the invention with respect to the prior art and the patent professional is in the best position to determine whether those differences will likely contribute to patentability through a collaborative approach.

A detailed compiled disclosure of the invention forms the foundation of a strong patent application. Determining how the prior art is similar and how it is different is essential to being able to gather great detail of information that can be put together while writing a patent application and invariably leads to a far more detailed written description of the invention.

Many a times inventors carry out a patent search themselves before filing a patent application and during the patent examination an exact invention already patented is found. But this is why you do the search!!!!

Thus, It is better to spend a modest amount of money on patent search before filing a patent application to learn about the prior patents instead of spending a lot of money on patent application only to learn later that no patent could be obtained.

As to how to perform patentability search?

How to perform state of the art searches?

How to perform validity patent searches?

How to perform Infringement searches and freedom to operate searches?

As a company it is important to understand the type of research which needs to be performed to identify the OPPORTUNITIES to create your own niche in the competitive market. For example, patentability search can be performed if any person or any innovator of a company has an idea or is doing a research.

WHEN to perform patentability search before filing a patent or after filing provisional patent application?

The company would like to know What is the SWOT analysis or in simple terms, identifying what are the different innovations or research which has already happened across the globe.

As a business owner knowing what happens in 2-3 years from now is a strategic move

When to protect intellectual property?

It’s very tough question to answer and it is not very easy to protect every creation of mind. Yes, there are some ways in which you can actually add some pointers and then file a patent application. Ideas are creation of mind and it might happen at one point of time the same idea is bouncing in multiple minds at neutron level across the globe.

3.png

First very important factor for an innovation to be PATENT WORTHY is that an idea should be new. New means that idea should be new concept all over the world not only in India. So the idea actually qualify for even being patent worthy is performing patentability research. Many patent databases are very helpful to perform the patentability. One example is WIPO which stands for world intellectual property organisation.

The WIPO database is worldwide patent database. Other important databases are espacenet, and USPTO.

Many times we get patent queries regarding what kind of patent databases are you using for performing your any kind of patentability or any kind of patent research?

4

Our BELIEVE is SIMPLE we use our intellect and use non paid patent tools.

Obviously, when you are using a paid database it is expensive. However, you are not using your intellect as a patent attorney or as a patent researcher to come up with ways and means to do your research in a manner which suffice the purpose of that particular invention or idea so that is very very important.

Over the years we have been able to find out better results by defining the kind of scope of work which we plan when we get a patent research query.

There is no STEP WISE MANTRA that would be applicable in all the patent searches. What is important is to analyse CRUX of the invention or the innovative features of the invention use your intellect as a patent researcher, and make the key strings.

What kind of strings will work better and if you have less time how to go about doing state of the art searches?

State of art search is basically talks about what kind of innovation already has happened in a particular sector. For example it can be a solar sector where by solar energy is being used to light up the lamp or it can be a LED sector where the technology relates to packaging of the LED to reduce the heat sink capacity.

However, what is important to understand what kind of approach or parameters are you going to take into considerations as a patent researcher.

KEY LEARNINGS FROM THE WORKSHOP

We will be discussing a lot on different kind of technologies. It is exciting to know that YOU don’t have to be an expert in a particular technology to do a patent research. Obviously, if you are a scientist or Phd in particular area it will take less time to understand the technology but at the same time as a patent researcher or as a patent attorney one should understand your job is to identify the innovative features.

Imbibing the acumen of a researcher and techno legal domain will is helpful when you are responding to office section response. The office action response is issued by the patent examiner and the patent examiner performs the search on a particular invention and will come up with objections so as a patent expert or patent attorney you need to respond to those objections. How to respond to office action response will be part of different workshop which we would be doing in the coming months.

How different kind of strategies can be applied as there is no one strategy which will be applicable to all patent searches but of course that key take away from the workshop would be that you would be able to understand what are the parameters you should actually look when you are doing the research.

Multinationals are coming in India so there is lot of job opportunities which are going to be there in near future and if you are already in the league of understanding how to perform patent research and can STRATEGISE a BUSINESS PLAN for the startup you get yourself a high package job.

You will be in a position to help the companies with their day to day activities whereby a lot of research is being performed by the scientists and many a times they have no clue whatsoever.

What kind of research is of prime importance?

What kind of research should be finished first?

What kind of research is being done by competitors?

Difference between Patent pending and Patent granted

Difference between Patent pending and Patent granted

Patent-pending sounds great, doesn’t it? But it does differ from a regular patent. Not every patent application results in a granted patent.

7 answers Is it possible to file a patent for a business idea in India

“Patent pending” (sometimes abbreviated by “pat. pend.” or “pat. pending”) or “patent applied for” are legal designations or expressions that simply means that you have applied for, but have not yet been granted, a patent.  

The words “patent pending” carry no formal legal significance but it communicates that you are “pursuing a patent” and have filed a provisional patent or a patent application. The patent applicants usually mark their articles with such words after filing an application because Patent-pending status protects your innovation while you are working through the patent process by keeping competitors from scooping your idea and marketing it as their own.

A strong patent portfolio help in fuelling investments for emerging tech companies. Investors often look to see whether a budding company has protected its intellectual property when determining whether to invest or not. It is more likely that you will be taken seriously if you come to the table with excellent technical knowledge and a patent-pending for your idea that’s been well-researched and profits projected, even if you don’t have all the connections with the big players. Holding a patent pending status also allows you to begin marketing for your product even before the patent is granted providing some control over the use of your product while warning others against attempting to file patents for substantially similar products.

However, the use of patent pending status by the patent applicant does not prohibit the third party to plead as innocent unless the patent number is indicated as the infringement action can be initiated only after the patent is granted.

Patent-pending status is temporary and only offers protection for a brief period of time, with protections similar to a regular patent. “Patent pending” (sometimes abbreviated by “pat. pend.” or “pat. pending”) or “patent applied for” are legal designations or expressions that can be used in relation to a product or process once a patent application for the product or process has been filed, but prior to the patent being issued or the application abandoned.

Not every patent application results in a granted patent. A patent can be licensed only after it is granted. Licensing a patent simply means that the patent owner grants permission to another individual/organization to make, use, sell etc. his/her patented invention according to agreed terms and conditions.

How to Copyright Website and Mobile Applications in India

What is Copyright?

Copyright, is an exclusive and assignable legal right, given to the originator for a fixed number of years, to print, publish, perform, film, or record literary, artistic , or musical material. Actually copyright is a legal right created by the law of a country that grants the creator of original work and given exclusive rights of its use and distribution, fora limited period of time

Copyright is a form of intellectual property, copyright are considered territorial rights,which means that they don’t extend beyond the territory of a specific jurisdiction.

It is a right which a person take for the protection of his business name which any other person didn’t take for the operation of business, as different person can do same business but the condition in copyright is that name shouldn’t be the same, as if it was, then the person who take the name of other person business for the operation of his business then it will be a offence and was punishable.

And now a days not only business like big brands, big restaurants, telecommunications etc, but websites are also involved in copyright act like Wikipedia, encyclopedia, yahoo.com, gmail.com, etc. they also make themselves register under copyright act for the exclusive rights through which websites make their names copyright and no other can take their names for the profitability, and now mobile applications are also there to register under the copyright act for the exclusive rights for the more profitability.

How to copyright ?

Following are steps of copyrighting;

Step 1: Filing the Application

Along with the requisite fee, an application needs to be submitted either in DD/IPO. Once this application is filed, a diary number is generated and issued to the applicant.

Step 2: Examination

There is a minimum wait of 30 days for recording and analysing any objections that may come up against the copyright application

a. In case of no Objection:

The application goes ahead for scrutinization by an examiner. This scrutiny gives rise to two options:

1. In case of discrepancy found during scrutiny:

A letter of discrepancy is sent to the applicant letter is generated and sent to the applicant.

Based on the reply from the applicant, the registrar conducts a hearing of the alleged discrepancy row.

Once the discrepancies are sorted during the hearing, the extracts of the same are sent to the applicant for him/her to register the copyright.

2. In case of zero discrepancy:

This would mean that the copyright application fulfil all criterion required for the copyright. The applicant is then given the nod to go ahead with the registration of the same.

(If the registration is not approved, then the applicant received a letter of rejection)

b. In case of an objection filed:

While we listed above the scenarios of ‘no objections’, in case one is faced with an objection, the following proceedings take place:

Authorities send out letters to the two concerned parties, trying to convince them to take back the objection. After requisite replies from the third party, the registrar conducts a hearing.

Depending on whether the registrar accepts the reply, the procedure takes shape

1. If the application is accepted:

The application being accepted means that the objection has been rejected. The application goes ahead for scrutinization by an examiner. This scrutiny gives rise to two options:

2. In case of discrepancy found during scrutiny:

A letter of discrepancy is sent to the applicant letter is generated and sent to the applicant.

Based on the reply from the applicant, the registrar conducts a hearing of the alleged discrepancy row.

Once the discrepancies are sorted during the hearing, the extracts of the same are sent to the applicant for him/her to register the copyright.

c. In case of zero discrepancy:

This would mean that the copyright application fulfils all criterion required for the copyright. The applicant is then given the nod to go ahead with the registration of the same. (If the registration is not approved, then the applicant received a letter of rejection)

d. If application is rejected:

In case this happens, then the applicant receives a rejection letter that marks the end of the copyright procedure.

Step 3: Registration

As can be seen from the aforementioned steps, the registration solely depends on the registrar. Once everything is cleared from the registrar’s end, the applicant received the copyright and can legally exercise all rights that come with the owner of that copyright.

Why to file mobile app software patents?

 IS IT NECESSARY TO PATENT MOBILE APPLICATIONS?

Today in this era of Technology, the development in the field of mobile applications, has surpassed that of any consumer technology in history. Mobile application market is rapidly-expanding with the change in marketing strategy of businesses in 2017.  For reshaping the future of market and for the ease of consumers, top most companies across the globe are not just investing in advertising their product or services but they are  also developing mobile applications for their brands.India’s smartphone market is flourishing and it is fascinating to observe that people are adopting smart devices 10 times faster than that of the 80s PC revolution.

Software and Mobile Applications, including those sold in Apple’s App Store for the iPhone and the Android Market for Android phones, are an increasingly profitable market with huge commercial benefits. With the rise in commercial success of the App Store, Google Play, Samsung Apps, and the Windows Phone Store, mobile applications have increasingly been a hot topic for patent clients.

Mobile applications are similar to other software and business methods when it comes to patent eligibility and patentability, which effectively implies that Mobile Applications are patentable!!

Reach patent professionals, experts and companies for guidance and to select right match for your requirement.

Recently a mobile application patent US 20170265038  was filed claiming a GUIDING SYSTEM FOR POSITIONING TARGET OBJECT”. The mobile app idea relates to a guiding system for positioning a target object, which is capable of guiding a user of a mobile device to the position of the target object comprises an wireless positioning device configured on the target object, a plurality of base stations configured around the target object, a positioning server, and an application software built in the mobile device. The wireless positioning device sends wireless broadcasting signal to the base stations. The base stations measure the intensities of broadcasting signal and then send the broadcasting signal and the intensities to the positioning server. The positioning server calculates a locating area of the target object according to the broadcasting signal and the intensities, and then sends the locating area to the mobile device. The application software displays the locating area of the target object to guide the user of the mobile device to the locating area.

In order to validate Food Safety and pathogen destruction in food material a recent patent US 20170231417 was filed for an “Apparatus and Method of Temperature-Precise Culinary Processes Including Food Safety Verification”.

The application relates to an apparatus and method for control of temperature-precise culinary processes with real-time verification of food safety and pathogen destruction. The apparatus and method utilizes software process control for monitoring and recording input temperature sensors, controlling active relays for adjusting temperature according to set programmable recipes. A connector kit (local or in the cloud) or gateway module receives real time data from the sensors and relays, and enables communication of real time data with client applications. An automatic process interface (“API”) and a communication channel (“websocket”) enable the connector kit (local or in the cloud), mobile applications, a website and cloud to share data and instructions. The API also stores data for authentication of client applications communicating that information via the connector kit (local or in the cloud) or gateway module enabling execution of client applications; the viewing of live and historical data from sensors; thereby generating live and historically validated food safety data with means to verify pathogen destruction and safety.

A number of mobile health applications are being developed to cater the needs of patients. United States Patent Application 20170193164 titled “SYSTEM FOR THE DISTRIBUTED COLLECTION OF BRAIN HEALTH INFORMATION” provides a system for collecting medical data about a subject between visits to a health care professional. The system includes a medical records database that stores patient data for access by the health care professional and an interactive and distributed data collection system provided to a team of collaborators (doctors, parents, teachers, etc.) who are to collect data about the subject between visits to a health professional. The data collection system includes a plurality of mobile computing devices implementing a software application adapted to periodically collect symptoms data and activity data about the subject in response to prompts relating to the subject’s condition, to enable chat discussions amongst the team of collaborators about the symptoms and activities of the subject, and to periodically forward the collected data in a report to the medical records database.

United States Patent Application 20170180961 titled- “SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR AGGREGATING MEDIA RELATED TO AN EVENT ” relates to a system for aggregating media which includes a server equipped with a processor and memory and having an event database associated with it which contains a plurality of events, wherein each of the plurality of events has a temporal window and geofence associated with it; and a plurality of users, each having associated therewith a mobile technology platform equipped with a display and a memory which communicates with the server. The memory of each mobile technology platform has an instance of a software application is installed which monitors the current location of the user, prompts the user to check into events present in the event database when the user enters a geofence associated with an event within the temporal window associated with the event, associates, with one of the plurality of events, media which was captured by the user while the user was checked into the one of the plurality of events and within the temporal window and geofence associated with the one of the plurality of events, and uploads the captured media to the server.

United States Patent Application 20170113747 titled- “ANTI-THEFT DEVICE FOR BICYCLES” pertains to an anti-theft device for a bicycle. It includes a tilt sensor attached to the bicycle wherein the tilt sensor has a tilt switch to detect upright orientation of the bicycle; a microcontroller, electrically connected to the tilt sensor; a transceiver, electrically connected to the microcontroller, which wirelessly transmits or receives signals; a computing device to wirelessly receive or transmit the signals; and a software application installed on the mobile computing device. If the tilt sensor detects an upright orientation of the bicycle, it sends a signal for the upright orientation to the microcontroller and the signal is forwarded to the software application. Then, the software application sends a warning to a user through a user interface. If the tilt sensor detects an upright orientation of the bicycle, it sends a signal for the upright orientation to the microcontroller and the microcontroller activates a warning beep to emit a high-pitched sound.

If you think your mobile app idea is worth filing a patent, we can assist you. We at Tech Corp International (TCIS, India) can help you determine what elements of your invention are actually patentable. To make this determination, we create a “patentability opinion”. This is done by performing a prior art search, in which we analyse the patent and non-patent literature in the public domain about potentially similar inventions.
