A passage from the NOLO's "Patent Pending in 24 hours" 6th ed. pp 124 indicates
Be sure to include a disclaimer to introduce your advantages section as we have done above and if possible, avoid referring to your invention as an "invention". The simplest way to do this is by using a statement such as: "Various aspects of my [name of invention] may have one or more of the following advantages ..."
Why not refer to the invention as "the invention"? Any 'pitfalls' to avoid are appreciated.
My understanding of the term 'invention' is a device, process, or both. That being said, the only interpretation that really matters interprets the term to somehow be limiting: I am seeking to understand the thought \ interpretation behind this limitation and avoid patent 'profanity'.
Other examples of 'profanity':
chief, majority, critical, essential, necessary, solely, only, main, significant, principal, important, fundamental, and vital
The Federal Circuit once again highlighted the effects of “patent profanity” in Research Corp. Technologies, Inc. v. Microsoft Corp., 627 F.3d 859 (Fed. Cir. 2010). In this recent case, Research Corporation Technologies, Inc. (Research Corp.) filed a patent seeking to claim priority of earlier-filed parent applications. However, Microsoft Corporation (Microsoft) argued that Research Corp.’s use of the characterizations “the present invention” and the “objects of the invention” in the specification of the parent applications strongly suggested that the claimed invention is limited in scope. Because of these assertions, the court sided with Microsoft and read the claims narrowly.
