For January 2021, looks like another conference call and/or Video Conference on Tuesday the 26th, at 7 pm. Now that Google Meet is free with no time limit, I may try a video conference that way. You do not need a gmail account for this.
Check back a day or so before that for updates.
For calling in to meetings, the numbers are: (605)472-5315, with our code as 796610
Topic for Next Meeting:
Continuation-in-part Patent Application
A “continuation-in-part” application (“CIP” or “CIP application”) is one in which the applicant adds subject matter not disclosed in the parent, but repeats substantial portion of the parent’s specification, and shares at least one inventor with the parent application. The CIP application is a convenient way to claim enhancements developed after the parent application was filed. It is the successor to the earlier “additional improvement” patents mentioned above. For a continuation-in-part application, claims to subject matter that was also disclosed in the parent are entitled to the parent’s priority date, while claims to the additional subject matter are only entitled to the filing date of the CIP application.

Do you participate in any Meetups that may interest inventors? If so, please post it to the Blog. We also started our own MeetUp beginning in January as the Pittsburgh Inventors Club
Always check this website for updates on when and where our meeting will be held.
And, in case you were wondering, there is not cost to join or attend our club, although we ask for a $1 donation per meeting to defray Meetup costs. Even if you do not currently have an active invention, please come and be part of our focus group for feedback on other’s inventions.
Check out the Links and Library tabs.
These are places I will be putting articles that I think may be of interest to some inventors. .
