Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

So these sections are to occur at the same level using only \section. Except section numbering will start from 1, and go to 2, 3, 4... etc. which is not what I want. What I was is:

2.1 Summary 2.2 Inventors 2.3 Innovation 2.4 World Patent Coverage 2.5 Advantages 2.6 Limitations 2.7 Patent Challenges 2.8 Market applications and opportunities 2.9 Exploitation 2.10 Clinical Trials 2.11 References
