Inventor files new patent improving his own work in recently issued patent; uses novel new components and some existing components, can prove advantages.
In the original patent issued inventor used prior art to differentiate novelty
If Inventor leaves out prior art section in new application does he put the information in his Information Disclosure Statement concerning his own previous work and the previous prior art; or does Information Disclosure cover the prior art without mention ?
Also; my current new claims use the identical format of the original successful patent claims except of course new names for all the new components
What language is needed acknowledging the reuse of existing components in the claims?
could you give an example what it look like?
