Purpose of an application for a patent or a utility patent


It should achieve a far reaching scope of protection. Therefore the main claim
should be composed as wide as possible, but has to express the core idea of the invention precisely and correctly.

The application has be completed with a sufficient number of sub claims as an opportunity of strategic withdrawaI. Necessary is the description of the state of the  art and the invention, so that the novelty and the inventive step of the idea can be recognized by comparison.

The worst case of an improper application is, that the core idea is published, but    the wording of the main claim only allows an imperfect scope of protection. Although the application can be corrected within one year after filing and within the primary scope of revelation, this is difficult and time consuming without a skilled support.
