Permission to File a Patent Application Outside India

This post was first published on 16th July, 2014.   This piece of writing tries to convey an important requirement under the Indian Patent law for an applicant residing in India who wishes to file patent applications outside India, directly. Any inventor or applicant is free to seek protection anywhere in the world. At times priority is given to a foreign country over India when there is less or no market potential to the invention in India or when the invention falls within the non-patentable subject matter in India. In India this privilege is not absolute, because it is necessary for any resident of India...

Post-dating Patent Applications

Post-dating refers to the shift in the Priority date of an application to a later date. The post-dating provision is available in various jurisdictions and in India, an application, whether provisional or...

This post was first published on 6th December, 2014.   TSM test is the Teaching, Suggestion and Motivation test. It simply means, when analysing the obviousness of an invention while comparing it with prior art, these are the three questions that have to be asked: Is the prior art quoted instrumental in teaching the reader the method of producing the invention? Does the prior art or any of its contents suggest any method of producing the invention in question? Does the prior art talk about problems related to a particular technology motivating an invention in a particular manner? It must be well understood by now that...

Here is how the invention actually works....

Common Reasons for Delay in Grant of Patent

This post was first posted on 20th July, 2o14.   A Patent gives its owner a monopolistic right and protection against unauthorized use of anything under its protection. This is the reason that a patent only gets granted once it passes several levels of stringent scrutiny. This phase is called the examination of the patent application. Examination of the application determines whether the patent application is worthy of a patent grant and thus, unless the application fulfills all patentabilty criteria, it does not receive a grant.
