When people are talking about relationship definition, they are usually referring to the process of coming up with an outline of the goals of the relationship and how the relationship will be maintained over time. The goals can be based on a variety of things, for example they might be things like shared vision, shared mission or shared future view. To get started we need to have some sort of outline or plan. A business might want to determine their future direction by looking at what the competition looks like. The company might want to determine how they are going to grow and where they are going in the next five or ten years.
In this article I will talk about the relationship definition and what role it plays in the entire electronic document creation process. This definition is most often seen in a student table. The student table is simply where everything that goes into creating electronic documents is inserted. It is typically run along with other electronic documents so that it creates a seamless experience. In the course of creating a relationship definition process this table would be used as the point at which all information on the business was pulled together.
The first step would be to determine the information relating to the business. For example, if they were looking for information relating to sales they would start with a title page. This is where the business’ name appears and it could also contain the phone number and email address of the company. On the top of the title page are the date and time the document was created. There is another piece of information relating to the present invention that must always appear on the top of the first page.
This feature of the present invention is called the’disclosing party’and it refers to the party who has requested the information. The disclosing party may be a third party who has requested the information in question. This person then requests an item or information from the other party. In order to satisfy this request information is passed between the parties. The disclosing party then takes possession of the item or information and then passes it on to the other party. When this occurs the other party must make good upon this or the information passed onto them is considered privileged information.
This feature of the present invention provides an extremely effective method of ensuring that information sharing regulations are satisfied. It can be very complicated to ensure that information passing between parties meets all of the laws governing information that is transferred through computers and there are numerous rules and regulations that must be followed. However, if this aspect of relationship law is well managed an exceptionally high level of compliance can be achieved.
At this point we would like to highlight a significant factor that relates to the use of this system. The relationship definition process actually includes the information about the present invention. This would appear to indicate that the invention is considered to be a patentable subject matter. This was not mentioned in the previous article because one embodiment was related to a computer system.
However, the courts have been interpreting the PTO standards and the relationship standards for years. Courts are aware that one embodiment will rarely fit into one patent application. Therefore, companies often try to employ various techniques that allow them to incorporate several of these subjects into one embodiment. Some companies are attempting to combine both methods and create an ‘unaired’ component to their invention. The reality is that this practice is considered to be improper by the courts since it does not take advantage of the fact that one embodiment will rarely fit into several patent applications.
The relationship process definition has a requirement that companies provide written descriptions of the invention in relation to one or more of the components that they have chosen to incorporate into their product or technology. However, some companies fail to adequately describe these components and as a result the examiner will often question whether the description accurately conveys the invention. This problem is exacerbated by the fact that many of the components of the invention are vague and open to vague claims of an uncertain nature. Figuring out exactly what a company means when describing one of its product’s or technology’s components is often considered to be part of the patenting process. Thus, Fig. 4 represents one of the steps that an invention requires to be examined under the relationship process definition.
