New USPTO Patents Petitions Timeline
We would like to inform potential inventors that the Office of Petitions has launched a new USPTO Patents Petitions Timeline that provides information on petition types that can be filed throughout each stage of the patent prosecution process. For each petition type, users can easily access information on average pendency over the past 12 months of decided petitions, the deciding office, petition grant rates, and link to specific sections of the Manual of Patent Examining Procedure (MPEP) or other parts of the USPTO website that relate to each petition type.
Filing Petitions can be a very effective tool in obtaining patents on a more timely basis.
Please contact our office for more information about filing Petitions with the U.S.P.T.O.
