Indian Patent Examination Report
Generally patent examiners need clarity in patent claims and the technology interpretation should suffice the ambit of the Indian Patent Act, 1970. In our IP practice over the years, we have noted following common objections which would be discussed in brief for clarity purposes.
Patent proceeds grant stage in India before the Indian Patent office, if patent examiner is satisfied beyond doubt with the written explanation provided by the patent agent representing client before the Indian Patent office.
Patent claims written in respect of computer instructions stored in a memory and executable by a processor, fall within the scope of Section 3(k) of the Indian Patent Act.
HOW TO OVERCOME SUCH PATENT RELATED DATA MATRIX?
SIMPLE tweaking is to define MODULES and not set of instructions is a good pro-active strategy to overcome such enquires. The preamble of the patent claims should relate to object and purpose of technology. Drafting patent claims in a manner not related to computer programs and claiming a handheld device, enhancing its technical effect through its constructional features is KEY to define ambit of claims to seek protection in India.

Hey, my name is S. Anupriya and I work in the capacity of technology strategist at Tech Corp International Strategist (TCIS). However, there is a story related to my name “S. Anupriya”.
All through my life I have been asked the same question again and again about Mystical letter S. So here it goes …
My full name is Saravanan Anupriya. Saravanan is my father’s name. “Saravanan” means Lord Murugan (Hindu god of war). According to scriptures, Saravanan is the son of Parvati and Shiva, brother of Ganesha, and a god whose life story has many versions in Hinduism.
Our family hails from Chidambaram, Tamil Nadu which is 5 hours journey from Chennai by bus. Interestingly, in my native state Names are written in a particular format. The format is very simple to remember. The first letter of the father’s name is used as an “initial” along with the name given to the child. So instead of writing surnames we we write “initial” along with our name.
My Day in Office
I am registered Indian patent agent and cleared Indian patent agent examination in 2019. After working on so many mission projects related to internet of things (IoTs), AI, ML, VR and aligning the technological advancements with new age laws my journey in Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) has been very enriching. The base applicability of biochemistry is very much applicable in the online world of coding and related verticals.
I also work on another vertical related to Molecular biology, Microbiology, Immunology, Bioinformatics and Biochemical techniques. Me with my team prepare detailed landscape reports and identify gaps for technology development. In earlier days of my career I had first hand experience in performing similarity searches (BLAST) for multiple nucleotides and proteins.
With every new innovation mission project I undertake with my peers as a team makes my technical skills sharp in Intellectual Property Rights. We have a team leader leading every project and we deduce different strategies to tackle the innovations in question.
At TCIS, I have been capable to align new age skill sets and I am able to interpret law and technology with a mind of a Biochemist. I hold a Masters degree in Biochemistry from Jamia Millia Islamia University based in New Delhi and a postgraduate diploma in Intellectual Property Rights from Indian Society for International Law (ISIL). I did my graduation from Sri Venkateswara College under the aegis of University of Delhi in Biochemistry.
As registered Indian patent agent before the Indian patent office I have in-depth knowledge of Indian patent act and patent rules and my technological minds facilitates interpretation of clauses in light of the enquires asked by the patent examiners.
Words and expressions of right thoughts with right usage of words is very important in drafting a good patent application. We regularly organise human capacity building workshops to foster and facilitate the Innovations in Industry 4.0.
What I do as Indian Patent Agent and aspiring Indian Patent lawyer
We work as a teamto protect and expand the intellectual property assets by developing patent portfolios and re-around strategies to protect existing IPRs.
“Every technology research is a proposition to set aside prior art with a view point to invent and reinvent the wheel to innovate disruptive product to serve society at large.”
Understanding futuristic viewpoint in advance is like peek into technology future landscape which is a true gift to live purposeful life.
Outside office hours, I facilitate young minds to understand ever evolving subjects like Science, Chemistry and Mathematics. Thorough understanding of concepts in a simplified format is a KEY skill.

IPRs has to be understood in REAL sense against the background
In current scheme of Indian backed businesses, many folks still don’t appreciate real value of intellect and what Intellectual Property brings on the table and to the masses at large.
What Intellectual Property brings on the table and to the masses at large is the question an intellectual mind needs to answer to understand IPR in real sense.
Intellectual property is the TRUE creation of the human intellect including but not limited to creativity concepts, inventions, industrial models, trademarks, songs, literature, software codes and the like. Strange claims are being filed by authors to claim a story of real life event under Copyright laws.
Good judgement by Bombay HC that ruled out that no one person can claim copyright on a story that is based on true events, opposing writer Rakesh Bharti’s suit claiming that #Chhapaak is based a story written by him. Justice SC Gupte made prima facie observations on hearing arguments on interim relief sought by Bharti.
Lesson Learnt by Copyright lawyer in India
Copyright registration in India is one aspect and claiming to be true author is all together a different story

Going back memory lane is always special. We discussed about silver lining difference between discovery and innovation. Workshop on Intellectual Property Rights sponsored by DBT was an enriching experience to share with budding Botany students from University of Delhi as to how IPRs can be harnessed in time to come.
The creativity and innovations in science and technology are the major drivers for the socioeconomic growth of developed and developing countries in this 21st century. To get intellectual rights for such new inventions, techniques, models, plant varieties, chemical compounds, drugs and etc. and selling these rights to other countries/company/organizations could elevate the economic status of the nation.
The major aim of this workshop is to create an awareness among young minds about the basic concepts of IPR, Patents, Copyrights, Trademark, protection of plant varieties/traditional knowledge and their claims.
Also aims at establishing a basic level of understanding about the laws, rules and regulations related to IPR.
Undergraduate and postgraduate students, Research Scholars, Scientists, Post Docs, Faculties and entrepreneurs
Understanding science with hawk eye legal approach is new skill set which needs to be instilled at academia level. For conducting more such workshops get in touch to know more as to how we can facilitate the IPR training at your institution.

Fintech Patent Attorney Assisting Global Clients to Develop New “Out of the Box” Strategies
Filing Patents to gain access in the fintech sector is a good strategic move. Walmart and other important business entities just file patents with two viewpoints. One viewpoint is very obvious to create a playing field for all other players in the market.
Other not so discussed pointer is defensive publication of the technology so the publication itself becomes prior art and no other patent applicant is able to bag the coveted prize of owning a patent.
Defensive publication of the technology so the publication itself becomes prior art
Sustainability of any technology is the need of the hour and reaching masses to develop win-win approach is the only way out to understand technologies around financial sector. The emerging digital technologies is not limited to 5G, AI, IoT, cloud computing, Bigdata and blockchain to enable mass consumption and envisage the big picture for the 5 trillion economy of India.
History is the Biggest Saviour and Governments Across Know that Innovation and IPR will attract more investment to generate job opportunities for the masses. Data is crucial and Big data is the new mining oil to harness creative content for the masses to imbibe.
Intellectual Services from experienced individuals:
Fintech, Bigdata and blockchain bagged technologies will be accepted by masses in 2019 and years to come. The issues which were still left in this budget needs to be answered by every citizen of India where government and private initiatives are going to solve grass root level issues in a holistic framework.
Still few questions which ponder my mind and should be answered by every individual to take their skill to next level of understanding is:
Who am I?
What Do I Desire?
What Do I Know?
Time and again the issue of unemployment is being touched base without any concrete steps or inclusion of vision board implementation to solve the most important issue at hand. From my own personal experience I have deduced very simple mantra that we ourselves create our destiny and as entrepreneur you understand that entrepreneurship is all about being ahead in your own game of snakes and ladders.
We ourselves create our destiny and as entrepreneur you understand that entrepreneurship is all about being ahead in your own game of snakes and ladders.
Big data and intellectual property
The speed at which big data and big data patents are increasing globally is commendable assets for the enterprises. Important milestones years have been 2011-2012 in which more than 90% of all the big data in the world was generated online. Big data in computer coding is bits and is doubling every year. Change is inevitable and data combined with increased computational power and cloud storage is driving force to change status quo of issues which needs urgent attention.
“Big data will revolutionise the way we live, work and think”
Big data as the new oil of the 21st century, is changing and paving way to breakthrough current way of how content in digital universe is imbibed by the human mind. Cognitive abilities is getting new meaning and harnessing real data point matrix is going to be KEY to open cosmic door.
Awareness is Acceptance and KEY to imbibe universal power.
Big data generated by vast networks of CCTV cameras are well equipped with facial recognition, body scanning and geo-tracking. The big data generated is retrieved from smartphones, and online behaviours is perceived and deciphered in multiple ways. To promote trust and security filing IPRs is important in Industry 4.0.
Important patents and that too in domain of big data patents are filed to cover scope of financial transactions, health and phone records, email and data communications, online searches, mapping use, and entertainment use, fitness trackers, online ride hailing companies, travel bookings and purchases.
Social media platforms yet free is taking so much data from its users, and you are generating data about yourself through platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube and Twitter.
The concept of free will and informed consent is all the more interesting in Industry 4.0. Privacy and data sharing unknown to many has its effects in digital universe.
Intellectual Property Assets includes number of Intellectual Property Rights eg: Patenting innnovations, filing brand trademark, Industrial design #IPvibes

Supplementary international patent search permits the applicant to request, in addition to the international search (the “main international search”), one or more supplementary international searches each to be carried out by an ISA other than the ISA which carried out the main international search.
The additional patent search has the potential of reducing the risk of new patent documents and other technical literature being discovered in the national phase since, by requesting supplementary search the applicant can enlarge the linguistic and/or technical scope of the documentation searched.
Supplementary international search is an additional search made by the PCT (Patent Cooperation Treaty) applicant in addition to the main international search. Supplementary international search is made in order to address their concerns about new prior art being found, once they have already incurred significant costs and entered national phase. It covers only one invention
Q: What are the prerequisites for filing supplementary international search ?
1. Patent Applicant must have filed PCT application at another search authority.
2. Patent Applicant should consider commercial value of particular application.
3. The number of disclosures relevant to the particular technical field which are known to be made in languages that are not a speciality of the main ISA
Q: What are the primary objectives of filing Supplementary international search report?
1. It reduces the risk of new patent documents and other technical literature being discovered in the national phase.
2. It provides a second chance to search the new prior art that may affect the patentability of applicant invention. This Search is generally performed later than the initial search in the PCT.
3. By requesting supplementary search the applicant can enlarge the linguistic and/or technical scope of the documentation searched.
Q: Which are the countries that can file the optional service for applicants?
EP (European patent)
Q: Who carries out this search ?
The International search authority (other than international search authority who carried out main international search ) carries out this search. Each authority determines the scope and fees for its supplementary search.
Q: What is the timeline and fees for carrying out this search?
The supplementary search request must be filed with the International Bureau within 19 months from the priority date.
Fees must be paid in Swiss francs within 1 month of filing the request:
supplementary search fee*
supplementary search handling fee*
The Authority begins SIS on receipt of the request and international search report (ISR), or 22 months from the priority date, at latest, if the main ISR is late.
The SIS Report is established by 28 months from the priority date.
Q: How do the applicants file a supplementary search request?
The request must be filed using the supplementary search request Form PCT/IB/375, specifying
– which Authority is to carry out the supplementary search
– (in certain circumstances – see Unity of Invention) which claims are to be searched
The request may need to be accompanied by:
– a translation of the international application into a language accepted by the Authority.
-any sequence listing in electronic format.
Q: What is Supplementary International search report and how it is different from main international search report.
The supplementary international search report is generally similar in content and appearance to the main international search report; it contains:
a listing of references to patent documents and other technical literature which may affect the patentability of the invention claimed in the international application.
However, it does not repeat documents which have already been cited in the international search report, unless this is necessary because of new relevance when read in conjunction with other documents discovered during the supplementary international search.
It is different from international search report :
– supplementary international search report may contain more detailed explanations than those in the main international search report which are helpful for a full understanding of the references listed.
– Unlike the main international search, no written opinion is established with the supplementary international search report.
Q: What is UNITY OF INVENTION in reference with Supplementary search report?
UNITY OF INVENTION generally indicates one Patent for One invention
Only one invention is searched – there is no option of paying additional fees for additional inventions Usually the first claimed invention is searched, but if the main ISA has found lack of unity of invention, the applicant may request supplementary search to focus on an invention other than the first.
