Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 35075 [2021-14073]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 124 / Thursday, July 1, 2021 / Notices (Fed. Cir. 2014) (the inventor ‘‘admitted that he never performed the experiments described in the . . . patent, and yet he drafted the examples in the specification entirely in pasttense language.’’). No results should be represented as actual results unless they have actually been achieved. Distinguishing prophetic examples from working examples in a clear manner will avoid raising issues relating to the applicant’s duty of disclosure. Best Practices When drafting a patent application, care must be taken to ensure the proper tense is employed to describe experiments and test results so readers can readily distinguish between actual results and predicted results. Any ambiguities should be resolved so a person having ordinary skill in the art reading the disclosure, including those who may not have the level of skill of the inventor, can rely on the disclosure as an accurate description of experiments that support the patent claim coverage. It is a best practice to label examples as prophetic or otherwise separate them from working examples to avoid ambiguities. Such presentation will help a reader easily distinguish prophetic examples from working examples with actual experimental results and will enhance the public’s ability to rely on the patent disclosure. Andrew Hirshfeld, Commissioner for Patents, Performing the Functions and Duties of the Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
