Message from Janet Gongola, Patent Reform Coordinator: USPTO to Host Second Anniversary AIA Forum on September 16, 2013
The USPTO is pleased to announce that there will be an AIA forum on September 16, 2013 to commemorate the second anniversary of the new patent law. The forum will be held on the USPTO's Alexandria campus in the Madison North Auditorium from 1 to 5 pm The forum also will be webcast (access information below).
USPTO subject matter experts from the Patent Business Unit and administrative patent judges from the Patent Trial and Appeal Board will discuss various provisions of the new patent law, focusing on filings made over the past several months with tips for compliance and how to avoid pitfalls. In particular, the agency will address prioritized examination (aka Track One), preissuance submissions, inventor's oath/declaration, supplemental examination, micro-entity discount, first-inventor-to-file, and the administrative trials. The agency likewise will field questions from the audience about each of these topics.
Please mark the date on your calendar, and join us for the most current recent updates on the new patent law. The forum is free with seating on a first-come, first-served basis.
