A non-provisional application is more formal than the provisional and it must contain all of the detailed sections such as a brief description of drawings, summary of the invention, background, field of invention disclosure, and most importantly the claims. Unlike the provisional, the nonprovisional application must point out and distinctly claim the elements of the invention they are claiming is their own. Claim terminology is nearly a language unto its own – and requires a true skill to craft in such a manner so as to grant the inventor the broadest possible rights without encroaching into another’s patent rights. The nonprovisional application may supersede and claim the priority of a provisional application when the invention as described and claimed in the nonprovisional was fully described in the provisional. The non-provisional is what gets examined by the USPTO and is the application that may eventually be allowed to issue as a patent.
