Legal Answers
21 Questions Answered

Q. How to respond to an objection to the specification in an Office Action.
A: It sounds like the examiner is requesting that the applicant remove prior art citations from the specification in view of the IDS. I suggest that you request a phone interview with the examiner to discuss this and possibly othe rejections, so that your next response may put the application in condition for allowance. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Liliana Di Nola-Baron, J.D., Ph.D. Attorney at Law Liliana@dinolaip.com 202-734-0253
Q. Have an idea for an athletic footwear design that I believe is unique and functional. Has it been patented?
A: A patent attorney can do a patentability search to determine if your fotware is novel and non-obvious. If the search shows that your footware design is novel, the patent attorney should prepare and file a patent application for your invention. Once the application is filed, you may talk to potential investors and manufacturers. You should be prepared to pay the filing fees that the United States Patent and Trademark Office charges plus attorney fees for the patentability search and the preparation of the application. Please contact me if you have any additional questions. I can of course assist you with the whole process.

Q. Hi team,Is there a difference between a patent with Amazon of a patent in the USA? Are they 2 different patents?
A: When did you file your patent application in New Zealand? If it is less than one year ago, you can file a Patent Cooperation Treaty application, and from there national stages in the United States and China. You should file on your own and not let Amazon appropriate your intellectual property rights. Please contact me if you wish to have more information.
