USPTO to Publish First-Inventor-to-File Rulemaking and Guidance Document in Same Federal Register Volume Soon
From Janet Gongola, Patent Reform Coordinator:
On Friday, July 20, 2012, the Federal Register posted the first-inventor-to-file notice of proposed rulemaking in its electronic Reading Room in advance of Federal Register publication on Monday, July 23, 2012. The USPTO withdrew the first-inventor-to-file notice to enable the Federal Register to publish the first-inventor-to-file rulemaking at the same time as the first-inventor-to-file guidance document. Both documents will be released in the Federal Register soon.
