“The court – correctly, in my view – reads this to mean that there are two kinds of inventorship “errors” that the Commissioner may correct: misjoinder, i.e., naming a person incorrectly as the inventor, and b nonjoinder i.e., failing to name a person as an inventor.”
“The court – again, correctly in my view – reads this as forbidding correction whenever an error of either kind misjoinder or nonjoinder arose with deceptive intention.”
“Misjoinder can be corrected whether the error arose through deception or not; nonjoinder, though, can only be corrected where the error arose "without any deceptive intention" on the inventor's part.”
“Misjoinder can be corrected whether the error arose through deception or not; nonjoinder, though, can only be corrected where the error arose “without any deceptive intention” on the inventor’s part.”
