At the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Patent Examiners review patent applications to determine if they comply with basic rules and legal requirements. Your job will be to research the subject matter claimed in patent applications, and you will communicate your findings on the patentability of applications to inventors or patent practitioners

Mr sankar patent examiner is different from patent agent

Patent examiners review patent applications to determine whether a claimed invention should be granted a patent. In general, the most important task of a patent examiner is to review the technical information disclosed in a patent application and to compare it to the state of the art. This involves reading and understanding a patent application, and then searching the prior art to determine what technological contribution the application teaches the public. A patent is a reward for informing the public about specific technical details of a new invention, so the work of a patent examiner includes searching prior patents, scientific literature databases, and other resources for prior art. Then, an examiner reviews a patent application substantively to determine whether it complies with the legal requirements for granting of a patent. A claimed invention must meet patentability requirements of novelty, inventive step or non-obviousness, industrial application (or utility) and sufficiency of disclosure.

patent agents or attorneys

Patent agents and patent attorneys (patent professionals) are people who have earned degrees in science or engineering and who have passed a registration examination given by a particular patent office
