In this section, you will be asked to provide an overview of your invention to the best of your abilities. Do your best in completing each section and if you can’t complete a section simply indicate “Not Applicable” or “Insufficient Information.”
To help better explain your invention, please provide at least one illustration (e.g. hand sketch or drawing). Formal technical drawings are not required, hand sketches are acceptable as long as they fully illustrate your invention. You should include reference numerals identifying each component to reduce ambiguity.
In this section, you need to describe your invention to enable one to make and use your invention. It is important to reference the drawings in your description, preferably referencing the Reference Numeral after each component/element name (e.g. trap 10, mouse 18). Failure to adequately disclose your invention in this section can result in the loss of valuable patent rights.
A Patent Attorney Review by a registered patent attorney is beneficial to see if you properly prepared your provisional patent application prior to filing with the U.S. Patent Office. In addition, having your patent drawings professionally prepared can ensure full and complete illustration of your invention. Incomplete disclosure of your invention can cause certain important patent rights to be lost.
