Patent Prosecution Legal Terminology

disclosure and enablement

1
“[I]f the eighth claim of the patentee can be maintained, there was no necessity for any specification, further than to say that he had discovered that, by using the motive power of electro-magnetism, he could print intelligible characters at any distance… {T]his claim can derive no aid from the specification file. It is outside of [the specification], and the patentee claims beyond it”.
O’Reilly v. Morse, 56 US (15 How.) 62 (1854).
