Why is prosecution history required?

The information obtained from the prosecution history of a patent application acts as an extremely important factor for determining the scope of claims. It has been observed over the past few years, by the patent community across the world, that if claim amendment is made to overcome the examiner’s rejections and the amendment is in the form of deleting certain features, the applicant is precluded from obtaining rights to those features or equivalents of each of those features at a later stage.
