I heard you can request the examiner formulate one claim for you. When is this a good idea?
If the goal of a patent is to merely document the existence of some novelty without trying to claim the world while you are at it, can an examiner's claim speed the process along?
If you never intend to prosecute your patent can an examiner's claim make granting more likely?
I assume if the examiner writes that one claim for you it is pretty darn narrow right?
