Office action response
Patent Prosecution refers to the communication between the patent applicants or representative with the US patent office either pre or post grant of the patent application to advance the application. This interaction usually consists of amendment of claims and supporting arguments to obtain an allowance of the patent application and grant of a patent. This service includes review of the patent application, modification of the claims, description etc as the case may be and filing of the response with the US patent office.
One of the biggest challenges of patent prosecution is passing the litmus test of patentability, which occurs in the form of objections/rejections raised by the patent office. Preparing a response to patent office objections/rejections requires high skill levels with a blend of techno-legal expertise.
An office action response includes both legal and technical arguments that should coexist harmoniously to rebut the rejections/objections raised in the office action. While legal arguments are based on one's familiarity with patent laws and manuals, the technical arguments are based on technical understanding of the claimed invention and the cited art. In addition, understanding the examiners contention and appreciation of the claim element and cited art is imperative for drafting a response to office action.
