Consider this WIPO: METHODS FOR TREATING SOCIAL DISORDERS and its current 3 entries at national levels:
- #US20110027765 -> Reviewer has requested some changes in the claims but it's going forward.
- UK: #GB2467710 -> Review is highly critical for many reasons, one being found prior art.
- Canada: 2706329 -> No review yet(?) in Canada.
The reviewer from the UK obviously did a much better job than his WIPO and US counterpart. (The WIPO review is horrible and makes absolutely no sense.) The UK reviewer findings are right and the prior art he found is obvious to anyone in the cognitive neuroscience field.
Shouldn't the American and Canadian reviewers consider this UK review and its findings before granting a patent for this application? (They don't know about the prior art.)
Based on the UK review findings, could the WIPO application be voided?
If "yes" to Q1, how could or will this happen?
Regarding Q1 and Q3: to make this happen, do I need to communicate with the USPTO, CIPO(Canada) and/or WIPO? Where, when and what?
Not only is this patent not deserved, but this patent application is as if someone tried to patent cognitive behavioral therapy (the most popular and effective psychological therapy) before its widespread adoption, trying to cash on everyone dispensing and receiving it. Voiding it (for prior art?) will allow us to dispense it for free to thousands of patients. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
