How can I order the Manual of Patent Examining Procedure on disk?


The Manual of Patent Examining Procedure (MPEP) is not available on floppy disk. A searchable text of the MPEP is available on Patents ASSIST DVD-ROM. The MPEP is also available on the USPTO web site at: http://www.uspto.gov/web/offices/pac/mpep/mpep.htm. Patents ASSIST DVD-ROM, normally sold as a subscription, can also be purchased as a single copy (most recent version) of the MPEP. This DVD-ROM and other media products can be obtained by visiting the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Web site at http://www.uspto.gov/web/offices/ac/ido/oeip/catalog/products/pp-a2n-1.htm to download the electronic information products order forms. The current MPEP is also available for use at a Patent and Trademark Depository Library (PTDL) in your area. For information on your nearest PTDL, you may visit PTDL Web site at: http://www.uspto.gov/go/ptdl. For additional information on ordering media products, you may contact the USPTO Contact Center (UCC).
