昨日に続いて、アメリカ補正書のメモです。

アメリカでは、補正書を提出するたびに、各クレームのステイタス(補正の有無)を記載しなければいけません。

表示するクレームステイタスは、主に以下の6つです。

提出書面のイメージです。
このようにクレーム番号の後ろに括弧書きで記載します。
(基本的には、アメリカ代理人が提出前に編集してくれると思います。)

714 Amendments, Applicant’s Action [R-08.2017]

(c) Claims. Amendments to a claim must be made by rewriting the entire claim with all changes (e.g., additions and deletions) as indicated in this subsection, except when the claim is being canceled. Each amendment document that includes a change to an existing claim, cancellation of an existing claim or addition of a new claim, must include a complete listing of all claims ever presented, including the text of all pending and withdrawn claims, in the application. The claim listing, including the text of the claims, in the amendment document will serve to replace all prior versions of the claims, in the application. In the claim listing, the status of every claim must be indicated after its claim number by using one of the following identifiers in a parenthetical expression: (Original), (Currently amended), (Canceled), (Withdrawn), (Previously presented), (New), and (Not entered).
