Hi everyone I’m JD Houvener your host of the ball today’s show were you the inventor entrepreneur or business owner gets your daily dose of inspiration to make the world a better place we’re here in part three of our series about patent services and we’re featuring volt patents calm there you’re gonna see a whole listing of what we do this week we’re just covering the top five the top five ways that we have been serving clients now for five years and the best services that we can provide today we’re going to dig deep and talk about the non provisional patent application yesterday we talked about the provisional patent application and I’m here to talk about what are the major differences between them but I’m not gonna get to them all so if you if you want to learn much more about this please go to our website and download the EU version of our book bold ideas the inventors guide to patents there and I recommend stopping at chapter 14 to hear more about the provisional non provisional breakdown begin to that you’re gonna get lots of more information about the nuances about drawings to specification and before we get into that today I want to give you a bold challenge all right today believe it or not it’s emergency medical services for children day that’s a lot of a lot of words but that’s the day we’re celebrate today’s emergency medical services for children and so it got me thinking about all these innovations that we do call the hard work that you entrepreneurs are working on let’s take a minute to stop and take a minute today to think about how our products what we’re working on how it’s going to change the lives of children I would love to hear in the comments below how you’re making a difference whether it be through your business directly or maybe it’s tangentially maybe it’s the the movement you’re making kinds of energy that you’re creating in your company how is it supporting the youth of today making sure that everyone has the opportunity to succeed I’ve got a real soft spot for children and learning in education so I’d love to hear about that so digging in today about the non provisional patent applications this is exciting this is where the rubber meets the road and we as patent attorneys get to help you draft claims and claims belong in the in the patent when you submit it as part of that Folsom it’ll of a utility application to the examiner that’s what the examiner’s gonna review first when they get a sense of staff what kind of sculpt is this inventor claiming what type of field of technology should we look at and in the claims it’s unfortunate it’s at the very bottom the very back of the patent application is a numbered set usually between you know 10 to 20 claims is pretty typical and in there you’ll see independent and dependent claims we won’t get into the details today on that but in a non provisional application that is the heart because that is what you’re claiming as the inventor you’re saying this is what I’ve invented I’m the first in the world to come up with this and you explain it in the English language in as broad of terms as you can to be able to explain and go to capture all the value all different types of applications that your invention could have in the job of the written description which could be you know tens or twenty pages plus describing all the different versions and how that would actually work how someone like you could actually go build it and along with the drawings that are needed to fully explain the invention that’s the duty of the non provisional and it has a lot of formality to it the non provisional must have an abstract brief description of drawings a detailed description is must have a summary a background as well as I mentioned the full set of claims the drawings must be formalized and they Arabs are very specific set of how they need to look in terms of line drawings and shading and how to show the different views and how to describe them using the brief description of drawings references must be made in those drawings to certain figure numbers and those must also be cross-referenced in the specification a non-provisional is the application that will mark the the time when you actually get opportunity to make reference to what will have become the examination period well I know this is a lot of information all at once but if you have any lingering questions about what a non-provisional patent application means maybe you’ve got a provisional patent application and you’re wondering what the differences are or how to convert it to a non provisional we’d be happy to help you with that and check out our website at bold patents com we have a link there for you to schedule your own 30 minute
