Hi, could anybody help me understand the following sentence?
This is about documents on patent application.
Examination Support Document can be avoided by submitting a proposed restriction requirement, with an election w/o traverse of an invention to which there are drawn 10 or fewer representative claims.
Could you paraphrase the blue part?
Technical terms are OK for me, I can look them up in dictionaries.
Thank you in advance!
It makes no sense to me either. Are the representative claims claims against the patent? If so, then I would say 'drawn' meant something like 'attracted'.
Thank you, everybody!
I wasn't hoping that there'd be a patent lawyer in the forum, but I was just hoping that it would be easier for native speakers to understand this at least than for me. But if this is difficult even for native speakers, it's OK. I'm sorry to have bothered you all.
I appreciate your willingness to help me anyway!
Not at all, PD- it's just that this one was impossible to work out.
Good one, TDOL
