Q: HI, I HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH MY LOCAL PATENT ATTORNEY FOR AN INVENTION FOR WHICH I APPLIED PATENT TO MANY COUNTRIES. HOWEVER, THERE WERE TWO EVENTS IN WHICH THE PATENT OFFICE OF EACH COUNTRY REJECTED MY APPLICATION DUE TO CLAIMS HAVING "LACK OF CLARITY" (AS STATED IN THE PATENT OFFICE WEBSITE: "THE REQUIREMENTS PRESCRIBED IN ARTICLE 36(6)(II) OF THE PATENT LAW (“THE STATEMENT OF CLAIMS SHALL BE CLEAR”). IN ANOTHER CASE OF ANOTHER COUNTRY, THE OFFICE REJECTS SAYING DUE TO'INAPPROPRIATE DOUBLE MULTIPLE DEPENDENCIES' FOR CLAIMS. THESE ALL EVENTS ARE CORRECTABLE. HOWEVER, MY PATENT ATTORNEY, IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE ATTORNEYS ABROAD, CHARGED ME FOR THE CORRECTION AND RESPONSE TO THESE OFFICE ACTIONS. NOW I FEEL LIKE IT IS ACTUALLY THEIR FAULT FOR NOT CRAFTING THE PATENT CORRECTLY IN THE FIRST PLACE. I PAID THEM TO DRAFT AND CONSTRUCT MY PATENT APPLICATION. NOW I FEEL LIKE I NEED TO PAY THEM TO CORRECT THEIR MISTAKE? WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE YOUR COMMENTS ON THIS. IS IT THEIR FAULT FOR DRAFTING PATENT APPLICATIONS THAT LACK CLARITY OR HAVE MULTIPLE DEPENDENCIES? SHOULD THEY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS? OR IS IT COMMON FOR THE CLIENT TO PAY TO HIRE THEM TO CORRECT THE MISTAKES? THANK YOU
