Context Driven Topologies Assigned to Accuracy&Aesthetics April 4, 2008 Washington Area Lawyers for the Arts (WALA) Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner LLP Maura Moran's Recommendations: Follow USPTO procedures. Submit documentation of previous disclosures. Respond to Office Action: Restructure claims Have previous disclosures in mind. Use terminology definitions from application (frozen in time at 2004 filing). File a Continuation Application. Keep application alive during pendency of Bilski case; let the case law settle down. USPTO likely to not review Continuation for one year. When prosecution resumes, consider filing Continuation-In-Part application to capture implementation improvements. Requests: Board authorize DMacP to be agency contact and provide technical input in prosecuting application Vera provide mathematical input (esp. topology) to FHFGD and DMacP
