I have a product I would like to patent which is a process to achieve a repair. A similar process has previously been patented and has since lapsed. My patent is an improvement on the previous patent and has 3 distinct areas of improvement. One of these areas is an instructional video to show how to apply the process. Without the DVD I don’t think the process would be of any use to the greater number of people as it is too difficult to teach the process from written instructions. The previous patent never had the video instructions. I want to stop someone from using the previous patent with video instructions.
Can I protect the video teaching as part of the patent?
