請問在background of the invention中已提述的美國專利號,是否需提IDS?
若無,有什麼影響嗎? ex. US5587286
謝謝.

以前在交大上課(初級班)時,上課老師說最好是提IDS,理由小弟忘了,希所知道理由的前輩,不吝告知,謝謝。

小弟認為最好是提拉:

1. IDS的資料,應包含"all information material to patentability"。 There is no duty to submit information which is not material to the patentability of any existing claim. 所以囉,要看前案有無影響claim的可專利性。

2. 問題是,誰來判斷patentability勒?“Materiality is not limited to prior art but embraces any information that a reasonable examiner would be substantially likely to consider important in deciding whether to allow an application to issue as a patent.” ,a reasonable examiner是一個假想的examiner,跟PHOSITA的概念粉像。

3.所以囉,如果在backgroud提到的前案,不提IDS,會增加日後專利訴訟上的風險。

以上為小弟的粗淺認知,僅供參考唄。 :mrgreen:
