1127 Notice of Publication [R-08.2012]
Applicants will be informed of the projected publication date assigned to the application on the filing receipt. The Office will not mail a paper copy of the patent application publication to the applicant, but will mail a “Notice of Publication” to the applicant indicating that the application has been published when the application is published. Copies of patent application publications are available on the USPTO web site (www.uspto.gov).
A “Notice of New or Revised Publication Date” may be mailed if the publication date changes by more than six weeks due to processing delays, if a secrecy order is removed, or subsequent to the revival of an abandoned application. If applicant timely adds or deletes a benefit or priority claim and the Office recognizes the correction and changes the projected publication date before the technical preparations of the application have begun, the Office will mail a notice (e.g., a corrected filing receipt), informing applicant of the newly assigned projected publication date.
