Fatal Office Action Rejections (FOARs) & How to Avoid Them With TSM for a Kind Awakening

Understand FOARs

Dominoes set in motion

  • Black dominoes: Invent-Draft-File
  • . . . wait for Office Actions
  • Red dominoes: get the FOARs VERDICT
  • Will the chips stay black and fall in your favor?

It all depends on whether you de-risked for FOARs BEFORE filing and CLAIMED RIGHT FIRST TIME.

Rejections on (101) patentability, (102) novelty, (103) unobviousness come first. Rejections for specification, definiteness, and best mode enablement (111,112,113) will kill you. When everyone understands this, you're well on the way to changing your IP conversation.

Why does any of this matter? It’s First-To-File now, not First-To-Invent!

The ABC Rule from TSM: Always Be Claiming...Why? Because the pyramid is flipped upside down < THEN -> NOW>
  • THEN <First-To-Invent>:¬†Before America Invents Act (BAIA) it was¬†F-T-I. Many provisionals¬†were filed with specifications but NO CLAIMS...they were "perfected" with¬†new matter on¬†conversion.¬†Provisional claims¬†sought priority from¬†the first date of conception, but were often rejected, and if allowed, they were severely narrowed.
  • NOW¬†<First-To-File>:¬†After America Invents Act (AAIA), it's¬†F-T-F.¬†Getting your patent application¬†airtight, right-first-time, unambiguously specifying & claiming¬†the¬†Preferred Embodiment¬†during product development, with¬†claims¬†that do not require adding new matter...TSM filed applications are de-risked from FOARs before filing, avoid fatal rejections during prosecution, and publish with good claim scope and clean file wrappers.

You can get the claims you seek by embracing the IP SAVVYS approach 

The risk of a ‚ÄúRude vs Kind Awakening‚ÄĚ

Myths or facts? Things everyone agreed on & the truth about fatal office action rejections

(1) Everyone agreed it was essential to get patents with Sustainable Competitive Advantage (SCA). 

SCA patents have true asset value because they are de-risked from FATAL Rejections BEFORE filing, publishing with clean File Wrappers. 

(2) At the same time, everyone's IP conversation was a little different.  Patent hunters had different skills levels and often times conflicting beliefs & patenting goals.

(3) More devastating, patent hunters were ill prepared for the "rude awakening" of FOARs during prosecution, with critical risks of abandonment after substantive patent spends.

The key to a kind awakening is to have a fool proof patent drafting method that avoids FOARS before filing with The Schwartz Method.

Attention-now hear this...align your patenting goals for a Kind Awakening:

Everyone wanted patents to issue quickly and cleanly. CEO's expected them to offer sustainable differentiation, Finance wanted predictable budget spends, Innovators were challenged to create and pick the right Preferred-Embodiment (P-E), R&D/Engineering was expected to perfect the P-E at the lowest cost, Patent Counsel was tasked to get monopoly claims, Product Marketing had to understand the competitive landscape, and BusDev/Sales was charged with selling the "differentiated must haves". Conflicting objectives? Not really...not when everyone is in the IP Zone together.

TSM Boost Utility Patenting for a Kind Awakening

Whether you are an innovator, patent counsel, or one of the team in-between, the IP SAVVYS book and IP-BC course are designed to close the skills gap and accelerate you down the patent learning curve, no matter your level of patenting experience.

When you close the skills gap, and everyone understands the risks of abandonment during prosecution, you will be on the path to a kind awakening, filing impact patents.  Our IP SAVVYS advanced Learning Management System (LMS) provides the IP SAVVY tools, your passport for your pathway to patentship.  

Leverage the IP SAVVYS content, comprised of THREE components:

->The FIRST component is the IPSAVVYS Book advanced learning management system website.  It offers a way to "on-board" with Schwartz's TSM approach. It explains the basic concepts of TSM and provides access to the Starter-Kits. It also provides bulk access to the IP SAVVYS Book directly from our publisher.

-> The SECOND component is the IP-BC BoostCamp advanced learning management system website (you are on it now). It explains the on-line course and offers ways to select learning options based on your Role/Title in the utility patent hunt. 

-> The THIRD component is the IP SAVVY tools with the Book, the Starter-Kits, and the self-paced IP-BC course with LEVELS for each role/title: ENTRY, INTERMEDIATE, ADVANCED, and ADVANCED-PRACTITIONER. All tools automatically populate each members private library on our LMS.

Each of our IP SAVVYS learning management systems act as your company's private platform (think WiKi). You never keep any of your trade secret patent content with us. Even the 30-Day Patent Challenge is kept on your own private server as you develop your Utility Compliant Disclosure. 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:

  • TSM is the DNA¬†of patents that publish with Strategic Competitive Advantage (SCA). The Big Bang Theory of IP Capitalization (BBT) establishes the¬†sequence of events and the timeline for¬†TSM drafting, filing, and prosecution.
  • Use TSM/BBT to craft¬†patents from the ‚Äúinside-out‚ÄĚ. File cost effectively, file airtight, file right-first-time, prosecute cost effectively, and publish patent assets that have¬†clean file wrappers and strategic competitive advantage.¬†
  • When you publish without undermining the scope of your claims during prosecution..........ONLY THEN WILL YOUR CLAIMS PROVIDE THE JET FUEL FOR YOUR VISION AND STAND THE TEST OF TIME.

It's all Worth The Price of Admission. Explore the LMS websites, then select the IP SAVVYS Book, Starter-Kit or IP-BC Course LEVEL aligned with your patent role/tasking. Guarantee your team and your company a kind patent awakening with TSM.

TSM Why/What/How

Why TSM?

Serious about patents? We were too.
It's the reason why I developed TSM, as a repeatable way to avoid FOARs before filing
...now I'm sharing it with you, in my book and course, as a way for you to succeed in the same way I did.

I spent the last 35 years on a journey down the "IP corridor of uncertainty" . . . opening every door inventing, drafting, filing, prosecuting, & licensing a portfolio of global utility patents.

David Schwartz, serial inventor, entrepreneur, & course author shares The Schwartz Method (TSM), "secret sauce",  for securing airtight patents: "I secured over $40m in royalty bearing sales, on 250 non-infringed claims, across a diverse set of inventions, using my TSM/BBT patent de-risking method".

Turn what you have into what you protect.

What is TSM?

The Schwartz Method is a one-of-a-kind, MPEP (Manual of Patent Examining Procedures) compliant  utility patent drafting technique developed by Schwartz.

  • TSM is a¬†set of procedures that provide an unambiguous and¬†definite way to draft and publish an airtight Utility Patent. Surely a coveted¬†"HOLY GRAIL‚ÄĚ.
  • TSM offers¬†a process that "begins with the end in mind",¬†by requiring the drafting of Utility Compliant Disclosures (UCDs) instead of simple Invention Disclosures(IDs).
  • TSM is¬†a universal, subject matter independent drafting technique¬†that¬†ensures the disclosure of key patentable elements in the latest, best mode, Preferred Embodiment (PE).
  • TSM¬†uses a¬†unique, reusable, iterative¬†‚Äúinside-out‚ÄĚ drafting sequence¬†to form comprehensive invention disclosures that expose, capture, and claim "the inventive step".
  • TSM ensures at least one novel and non-obvious claim, recognizing that what you see in a published MPEP patent is not "how you get it".
  • TSM embeds incremental claiming in each ideation step of the product development life cycle¬†using Schwartz‚Äôs Big Bang Theory (BBT) of invention formation.

Schwartz honed TSM, pro se, as sole/lead inventor on over 30 of his own utility patents comprising more than 250 non-infringed claims, across a diverse range of utility patent classifications.  

Use it with Patent Counsel to anticipate and de-risk your specification and claims from Fatal Office Action Rejections(FOARs), before filing.

Use it with the Examiner during prosecution to secure your best possible claim scope and to publish with a clean file wrapper.

Origin of TSM explained   

With BBT as innovation timeline

Born of Trial & Error

I developed¬†The¬†Schwartz Method (TSM) and¬†¬†Big Bang Theory (BBT) of IP capitalization¬†re-working and perfecting my method¬†as "a matter of life or death" on dozens of ¬†pro sea utility patents, across diverse subject matter. ¬†In BBT, we go back in time and start at T=-5 (conception). Then we work forward to the key event, Notice of Allowance @ T=0, when the ‚Äúworld begins‚ÄĚ. It is the sequence of events we¬†use to¬†integrate¬†TSM with¬†the¬†product development life cycle.

I filed globally, prosecuted my applications to issue, and licensed for royalty bearing sales. My best patents were de-risked from Fatal Office Action Rejections (FOARs) BEFORE FILING...so I documented my method!  

My promise: Using IP-BC, IP hunters like yourselves can create and and draft high quality SCA patents during product development, all at the lowest cost. 

How does TSM work?

TSM is integrated into your product life-cycle

With TSM you will always be claiming. Non-provisional applications drop out of the shoot with airtight patent specifications and claims:

  • First: TSM employs what we call the Utility Compliant invention Disclosure (UCD).¬†UCDs are different than simple Invention Disclosures. They capture¬†non-obvious elements of your¬†best mode preferred embodiment in language understood by your lead inventors.
  • Then:¬†¬†TSM iterates¬†to select your best and final UCD¬†for preparing a non-provisional patent application¬†de-risked from Fatal Office Action Rejections (FOARs) before filing.¬†
  • Next: With TSM, when it's time to review your TSM drafted patent, they're¬†more readily reviewed and approved¬†because the lead inventors understand claim scope.
  • When: the application is¬† filed, it's¬†airtight and¬†right-first-time, simplifying¬†prosecution by not having to add new matter or narrow claims.
  • With TSM¬†You Can:¬†enjoy being¬†¬†first¬†to¬†secure a notice of¬†allowance for your¬†published patent¬†with properly scoped claims¬†and a clean file wrapper.
  • When you get onboard:¬†as a set of best practices, TSM can be your standard for patenting, serving throughout your entire drafting, filing, and prosecution.

Realize the benefits of using Schwartz’s critical thinking guidance and tips to re-focus all of your patenting conversations.

IP-BC Benefits

Benefit: Get Impact Patents

at the highest quality and the lowest cost
  • Preparation fees¬†can run¬†$5,000 - $25,000 or more
  • Prosecution fees can easily¬†double¬†preparation¬†fees
  • Fatal¬†Rejections¬†result in¬†abandonments¬†as¬†total loss

Lost time, questionable protection? ... Reduce your total utility patent spend by >70% and publish impact patents with Strategic Competitive Advantage (SCA)

Saving this much depends on getting everyone IP SAVVY with IP-BC's TSM, from CEO to innovators, and all hunters in-between. 

Benefit: De-risk FOARs 

Before filing...This is how we do it

Integrate TSM/BBT with product development. Stop filing as an after-thought with our blueprint:

  • Enable, Novel & Obvious (1,2,3)
  • Focus/refine Best Mode (4)¬†
  • Exhaustive¬†search/redraft (5)
  • Iterative de-risking¬†w/IDS (6)
  • File/prosecute DocPak (7)

Whether you're first to invent, TSM is how to be First-To-File. TSM makes patenting an "engineering discipline" by tying it's IDPAW, UCD, UCPA, & UCP into Product Lifecycle Management. 

Benefit: The Village Effect

Common language vs Tower of Babel 

  • When everyone , from¬†inventor to¬†CEO we‚Äôre ¬†"IP-Savvy", then
  • Patent apps popped out of the¬†product¬†roadmap
  • IP hunters used different tool kit components¬†
  • All contributed to lowering IP costs

They used TSM with BBT to integrate patenting into their Product Life Cycle. They were First-To-File (F-T-F) SCA patents on product delivery. They got critical differentiation and increased value.

Benefit: Shared Goals

"Got IP-zone"?

  • Even though each of their¬†IP GOALS differed,¬†
  • By sharing¬†the¬†IP-zone,¬†ALL "roles & titles", especially¬†CEO found common ground
  • ...and TSM¬†worked for¬†ALL Subject Matter classifications¬†with it's 85%-15% rule

IP hunters can take any LEVEL and upgrade as needed. Delivered in language everyone understands, TSM has tools for every IP role/task.

Benefit: BBT as unifying model/integrates with TSM

BBT integrates TSM in the product life-cycle

  • BBT ties¬†R&D¬†to Product Creation¬†at T=-5
  • BBT aligns¬†product introduction w/patent filing
  • BBT ties Patent Monetization to BusDev at T=0
  • The underlying TSM ensures SCA patents
  • TSM and BBT together, provide a reusable,¬†repetitive iteration best practice process for your product life-cycle

Time your patent drafts in synch with your go-to market steps. How? Optimize your IP workflow, prioritize your P-E's, and build your SCA patent portfolio with TSM/BBT. If it's worth doing once, it's worth doing again! 

 

Benefit: TSM lessons delivered in plain English 

Using easily understood graphical metaphors, non-legalese, and epiphany's

  • IP-BC's functional benefit is it's clear lessons, delivered in a logical and consumable format, all with MPEP compliant content and SAVVY interpretations.
  • Is¬†T=0 Notice Of Allowance (NOA) a "light-switch" ?
  • Do you "Turn on NOA" &¬†mint money. NO! Why not?
  • Epiphany: You have to "walk the talk" backwards to understand¬†how to turn on that light switch.

The course is delivered in readily understood language - not legalese.¬†¬†"The Schwartz Method (TSM)" is clearly sequenced in a step-by-step, ‚Äúhow to‚ÄĚ de-risk from¬†FOARs blueprint that begins with the market-entry end in mind.

Creator of CEO Boot Camp and why CEO's are choosing IP-BC's TSM

 

TESTIMONIALS

What students are saying:

  • A concise method to de-risk your patent process. A comprehensive and thoughtful utility patenting course.
  • I love it. Excellent. Having learned from structured teachers or teachers who teach with metaphor and structure, I think this program is great. Finally, somebody knows how to use metaphor and structured graphics to explain the patent system.
  • Years ago I downloaded a copy of the Manual for Patent Examining Procedures, and found it very heavy going in trying to try to understand the process of citing the operative structure of a patent. I found those concepts buried in civil service gobbledygook. Now, with the America Invents Act, everything's changed. This course helps me walk through the MPEP and understand the new rules. 
  • Wow! This is almost like boot camp. At least your're explaining it; there's no guessing. 
  • I wish I had this training back in 1970 I was doing consulting work for people; inventing things as well as inventing my own stuff. Eventually I had a hand all my work off to a patent attorney... I never owned anything. All I can say now is thanks to to the author of this program.

MORE TESTIMONIALS

Patent quality/speed:

A company that was receiving substantial legal invoices from their IP counsel for services they did not entirely understand. Applying TSM to the software patent draft application, they "rewrote" it with counsel, carrying the burden of doing the revised draft by themselves. Together they converted an airtight UCD to a UC patent application(UCPA). The revised, MPEP compliant application was filed with a better chance of getting SCA, while saving thousands of dollars in both immediate and risky downstream legal expenses.

A licensing obligation: 

A start-up company used TSM to reverse engineer and analyze an issued patent they were being "forced" to pay royalties on. They deconstructed the published claims usingTSM and analyzed the Examiner's actions in the File Wrapper. By applying TSM to "re-read" the allowed specification, they were able to identify critical antecedent reference gaps for the issued claims...the university agent had expanded the scope of the claims with an amendment after filing that WAS NOT SUPPORTED BY THE SPEC...a no-no. Successfully showing their licensor that the patent was invalid, they secured a release from the university. Using the prior art, they secured their own SCA patent and were then able to sell their start-up for over 10 million dollars.

Why Your IP SAVVYS Book & Course? Worth The Price Of Admission

Consider these three vignettes

If any of them resonate, then the IP SAVVYS tool box is right for you

In this first vignette, you enter Monty Python's argument room, except in this version, each room has someone from your IP hunt running it . . . from patent counsel, to a cohort, to the Patent Examiner. And instead of arguments, you change each IP conversation into a collaborative dialogue.

Vignette #1 - The Argument Room

Understanding or Mis-understanding...you decide

 

Each door you open in the IP Corridor Of Uncertainty results in a unique IP conversation, each with a different set of risks. De-risk your engagements using IP-BC. Find your pathway with us.

Watch the argument room again
Vignette #2 - Coming to America

In this vignette, picture yourself as the immigrant with your own unique language or as the immigration officer offering a pathway to citizenship. It's not only about using a common language to express your goals...it's also about the citizenship  principles. You're not "coming to America" but you have to choose your "patent speak" or Universal Patenting Language(UPL) and Guiding Principles(GPs) to achieve your pathway to PATENTSHIP. Choose wisely and opt in for IP-BC.

Vignette #3 - The magic Orgital Pill

In this last vignette consider the following: The single most challenging part of patent counsels relationship with  clients is UNINFORMED DISORGANIZATION. Imagine yourself as either the innovator or patent counsel, being offered a unique pill that magically gets you speaking the same patent language with the same understanding of what it's going to take to file. It brings new life to both of you as IP savvy partners, singing from the same hymnal. Will you each take the potion & be imbued with the power of IP-BC's Universal Patenting Language (UPL) & Guiding Principles(GP) to get equally organized, be  mutually understood, and file accurately and first?
