Article "CIPs are Useless"
« on: 11-04-14 at 01:26 pm »

I found this paper on CIPs to be helpful.

http://www.valuablepatents.com/2005CIPsAreUseless.pdf

The link is to:

“CIP’S ARE USELESS”
BY LOUIS J. HOFFMAN

NAPP 2005 CONVENTION

The author does a good job of explaining why CIPs don't accomplish what most folks think they do.

Karen: Tks.  Just got around to it.  The “miracle” of the CIP is perhaps just slightly less misunderstood than the “miracle” of the PPA.  Article did rekindle – in my mind at least – a long-ago thread on “embodiment”; a concept I personally have no problem with (i.e the “same invention”, just a different un-claimed “embodiment”, the Kennecot case cited).  Personally, I wouldn’t use the neutral “continuing application” for a true DIV filed in the face of a RR.  I would want to expressly lay claim to the statutory prohibition.  I urge pro ses and neophytes read it.
