See the procedures set forth in pre-AIA 37 CFR 1.497(d) and 37 CFR 1.48(a) for correcting inventorship. If an inventor refuses to execute the oath or declaration or cannot be found or reached after diligent effort, applicant may file an oath or declaration and a petition in accordance with pre-AIA 37 CFR 1.47.
