"Patent It Yourself" Update Blog and Nolo I/P Podcasts
Here are a few of his recent updates:
- Omit the Objects and Advantages section entirely (many patent attorneys are now doing this) or don’t name it “Objects and Advantages”.
- Don’t refer to “the invention” or call any embodiment “preferred”; instead simply refer to “this embodiment” or a “first embodiment”.
- Keep the Summary and the Abstract general; don’t include any details of the invention that you would not want to be used to limit the invention. I advise simply paraphrasing your broadest claim for the Summary.
