Correction of Inventorship

37 CFR 1.48(c) (text below) requires an additional fee to paid "unless the request is accompanied by a statement that the request to correct or change the inventorship is due solely to the cancelation of claims in the application."

 

How is this rule being interpreted if only one claim is cancelled?

 

How is this rule being interpreted in a design application when the change of inventorship is due to an election/restriction requirement?

 

Thank you,

Zach

 

(c) Any request to correct or change the

inventorship under paragraph (a) of this section filed

after the Office action on the merits has been given

or mailed in the application must also be

accompanied by the fee set forth in ยง 1.17(d), unless

the request is accompanied by a statement that the

request to correct or change the inventorship is due

solely to the cancelation of claims in the application
