Teaching, Suggestion and Motivation (TSM) occured due to the Supreme Court case of Graham v. John Deere Co., 383 U.S. 1 (1966). A second Supreme court case called KSR concerns the issue of obviousness as applied to patent claims. An examiner can reject a claim based on common sense of a person having ordinary skill in the art (PHOSITA). Common sense is a perception and Voltaire has stated "Common sense is not so common." If you are interested in obtaining a patent, this talk is a must see.
Claims are typically partitioned into apparatus, method and "means for" type language. Some of the mystery of reading claims is uncovered. Terms covered include : antecedent basis, negative limitation, etc. Time permitting a patent case may be presented.
The basic fundamentals of patents are presented. The history, rights and types of patents are addressed. The required components of a patent application and topics that can not be patented are detailed. Patentability issues based on basic law and a description of 35 U.S.C. §101, §102, §103 and §112 are covered.
