PATENT PROSECUTION

The interaction between an applicant for a patent (or his representative) and the USPTO regarding a Non-Provisional Patent Application. This process generally involves determining whether an invention comprises patentable subject matter, whether and how prior art affects the claimed invention, claims and the scope of protection.
