What in the world. You havent taken much math/physics/engineering have you? Mathematical theory underlines EVERYTHING that physicists and engineers do. If you are fluent in the language of mathematical theory there is nothing you cannot understand in physics and engineering.

Yes, it underlies it, but patents aren't about THEORY they are about application. The whole rule about not patenting abstract ideas is aimed at preventing patenting of equations. Just because you understand the equation of the theory doesn't mean you'll be able to understand and explain the claims of a patent. As others have said, a math degree doesn't qualify you for the patent bar so obviously the PTO doesn't agree with your line of thinking.


It doesnt mean I wont be able to understand it either. Math degrees should qualify. The fact of the matter is none of these easy science/engineering degrees would exist without mathematicians. Q.E.D.

I have no desire to do patent law nor do I have a desire to get a masters in electrical engineering. Talk about boring.

then why are you asking questions about the patent bar and talking about science/engineering majors?

quit trolling

This is a solid A in trolling. I'm impressed.

I'm not. I had the feeling he was a troll halfway down the first page.

If every single math major I've ever met didn't say shit like this I might have picked up on it.

I have a bachelors in biology, did some research and lab work but not published. Attending GW (supposedly decent IP program).

What is there for me in the IP field? I know I am no help in prosecution for most patents seeing as to how my science background is limited (took one year of physics and o. chem, but forgot most of it). However, I am committed to taking the registration exam before starting school in August to get a leg up in finding summer employment. Is there a future for me in IP with such limited science background?

It's possible, but you will be competing with a bio PhDs for those jobs. Definitely pass the patent bar as early as possible to get a leg up.

Welp this was a solid use for 15 minutes.
