Let's just say I have an invention and I would like to have 60 patent claims to cover the invention properly.
I file the application with 30 claims (3 independent and 27 dependent) and my patent is granted.
Now, can I file a continuation for the remaining 30 claims (3 independent and 27 dependent)?
It seems like double patenting provision applicable here. That's why I'm asking.
According to Wikipedia,
The United States has two types of double patenting rejections. One is the "same invention" type double patenting rejection, based on 35 U.S.C. § 101, which states in the singular that an inventor "...may obtain a patent." The second rejection type precludes what is referred to as "obviousness-type" or "nonstatutory" double patenting.
