My Patent is to cure Herpes outbreaks in 8hrs to 3 days with a guarantee of never ending in a scab.
Is it an existing pharmaceutical product made my someone else. I am not interested in what or who that co is?
If not an existing product, what unique features does your product have?
Have you made and designed it?
It is an existing pharmaceutical product made by someone else. I have used the patent in its entirety for a totally different ailment, which is permissible by law.
Sorry, one other point the original patent has expired.
I am not surprised that you are having problem with the patentagent. What you have is not patentable. He may have dressed it up as patentableto get it through a Patent Registration but it is simply not possible to patenta different way of using something which already exists. This is well settledlaw.
For example a hammer is used for knocking things in bangingthings. You could not attach a piece of string to it and claim a patent bydrilling a hole in the handle (which already exists in many hammers) and sayingthat you can now use it as a plumb line.
Patent applications are only concerned with unique features ofthe product and your product (it is not a problem that it is not actually yourproduct but belonging to someone else) has no unique features.
You are simply using it in a different way.
Viagra is used for erectile dysfunction. The patent has nowexpired
It does not become a whole new patent simply because it mayrelieve pain in the knee.
I think you will probably find that is why the patent agent hasgone to ground because he has had his money and he can progress this no further
If you don't believe me, by all means get hold of (what will beexpensive) a Trademark Lawyer who does nothing else would expect to pay about£350 per hour for the advice. You could also contact a barrister would give youan advice would be about £800 for the advice plus VAT. I think you would belucky to find one outside central London.
I am sorry, I appreciate that this is not the answer you wantedbut there is no point in me misleading you.
