From Janet Gongola, Patent Reform Coordinator: USPTO Releases Statistics on Filings for New Proceedings That Became Available in September 2012

Over the past five months, the USPTO has received various filings for the provisions that became effective on September 16, 2012.  These filings include preissuance submissions, requests for supplemental examination, and petitions for both inter partes review and covered business method review.  To enable you to track these filings, we have added a new page on the AIA micro-site called “Statistics.”  This page features information about the number of raw filings for each new procedure.  As you will see from the data shown on the Statistics page, stakeholders are incorporating all of the new procedures into their practices as the number of filings generally are on the rise.  Here is a link to the Statistics page for you to check out:
