Examiner’s Objection

Generally, most of the objections from a Patent Examiner is to re-write the patent claims so that the scope of this or these claims do not overlap the exclusive right of another inventor. A patent application is initially written with claims as broad as possible to try to give the Applicant a patent that has the greatest commercial value. However, the role of the Examiner is to limit the scope of the claims to cover a fair portion of the invention field without undermining the rights of previous inventors.
