Patent agent examination query 1

Sumanthy an R&D scientist is married to Anand. After few years of marriage she found her husband snoring which disturbed her sleep.

She found the anti snoring devices in the market not very efeective and convenient and came up with her own invention which is a mask which will transmit the nose to a small box kept under the bed, thereby reducing the snoring nose by about 90%. She filed a patent for the same and was granted in December 2007.

Later in 2010 she came up with a new idea wherein the snoring nose is transmitted from the mask to the box which is now connected to a small electronic device with a key board which converts it to a soothing background music. She seeks advice on how best to protect the improvisation.


Please suggest the best.
