Third Party Observations in China - Part 7 of an 8 Part Series

It is recommended that a third party submit observations as early in prosecution as possible (such as prior to issuance of an Office Action) to allow the Examiner sufficient time to consider the observations. A claim chart comparing the features of the claims with the prior art can be submitted to facilitate the Examiner's understanding of the arguments submitted in the observations.
