I have a PCT application related to telecommunications and IT (more specifically, 3GPP wireless networks and Indoor location).
I have all documents in Word format.
The patent has been granted in US and we can use the highway program.
In the international phase, to improve the coverage, we have also submitted article 19 amendment. In the article 19 amendment, we didn't revise anything in the specifications. We only revised the claims, because the original claims were poorly written.
We also submitted pre-exam request. The IRPR rejected all the amendments completely. However, after my own reading, non of the explanations were reasonable. Indeed, non of the prior arts given in IRPR were related to my patent application.
So we submitted the original PCT application for US patent, disavowing article 19 amendment. Now the patent is granted. Most of the prior arts mentioned in IRPR were also mentioned in the allowance letter. Now, the examiner gave a fair result and approved the value of the patent.
But I would like to submit the continuation application to improve the claims and broaden the coverage. In the continuation patent, there is no need to revise anything of the specification. The continuation application only needs to be based on the existing claims of the article 19 amendment. The claims in article 19 amendment were perfectly written, in my view. So one simply way is just to reuse most of them. However, since the IPRP results were negative, we need to revise the wording of the claims so that the examiner may treat them as new claims, rather those in article 19 amendment, so that the examiner will not cite IPRP results directly to kill the continuation patent.
I can send you the application number, ISR, IRPR, and US allowance letter.
