Patent Application Filing and Management Focus Session

The Patent Application Filing and Management Focus Session is geared towards inventors and pro se applicants. We’ll share information on how to submit your patent application online, and view and manage your application following your submission. Additionally, we will discuss some tips and best practices.

We will also discuss the eMod (eCommerce Modernization) project , which is an effort by the USPTO to improve the electronic patent application process by modernizing its eCommerce systems (EFS-Web and Private PAIR). The purpose of this effort is to improve the user experience, enable more efficient system integration, and expand system usefulness. For more information about eMod, please see our website at http://www.uspto.gov/patent/emod; or the recently-released blog about this topic at http://www.uspto.gov/blog/director/entry/modernization_of_electronic_patent_application. We will show some screen drafts of the new Patent Center tool and gather feedback from the audience. We will have subject matter experts in attendance to assist with any questions.
