Formula of the Invention (utility model) is the most important element of the application. It is in it that the scope of legal protection is determined. It must be correctly formulated, meet the criteria of novelty and inventive step (for an invention) or only the criterion of novelty (for a utility model), industrial suitability. The formula must be written in such a way as to achieve the purpose of patenting, to ensure the necessary level of legal protection, to make it impossible to circumvent the patent and to ensure the possibility of charging the infringer in case of infringement of rights.

The Text of the Description includes the justification of the materiality of the features, the justification of the achievement of a single technical result and the possibility of implementation. A properly drafted justification text provides the following advantages:

  • the probability of requests from an expert of the Patent Office decreases;
  • the probability of the expert contrasting other technical solutions by novelty or inventive level decreases;
  • the probability of refusal due to the lack of possibility of implementation decreases;
  • free interpretation of the text of the formula by court experts is prevented.

Attorneys of DESTRA Patent Law Firm compose the text of the description in such a way that it meets not only the formal requirements of the rules, but is also aimed at preventing the occurrence of the above-mentioned problems, and also takes into account our understanding of the specific object and the practice of decision-making by experts of the Patent Office and court experts.

An Abstract is an abbreviated summary of the content of the description of the invention (utility model), which includes the name of the invention (utility model), a description of the field of technology to which the invention (utility model) belongs, and/or the field of its (its) application , if it is not clear from the name, a description of the essence of the invention (useful model) with an indication of the technical result to be achieved.

Graphic Images (drawings, schemes, diagrams) are made in strict accordance with the rules.

It should be borne in mind that according to the requirements of the law, the invention must be disclosed in the application in such a way that an average specialist in the given field could, after familiarizing himself with the materials of the application, implement the described invention.

A patent attorney knows how, on the one hand, to fulfill the formal requirements of the rules of filing a patent application and to describe the possibility of implementation as fully as possible, and on the other hand, to hide (blur) the best implementation option or know-how in order to prevent the possibility of copying by competitors or infringement losses by the Customer as a result of full disclosure of information.

Knowing the nuances of the legislation, an experienced Patent Attorney forms the application materials in compliance with the best interests of the Customer (Inventor) — that is, disclosing only the necessary amount of information and not disclosing know-how.
