(297) Electronic Publication of Certificates of Correction on the United States Patent and Trademark Office Web Site with Later Listing in the Official Gazette Beginning in September of 2001, pursuant to 35 U.S.C. 10(a), 254, and 255, and 37 CFR 1.322 and 1.323, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) will begin to publish on the USPTO web site at http://www.uspto.gov/web/patents/certofcorrect a listing by patent number of the patents for which certificates of correction are being issued. The USPTO is now automating the publication process for certificates of correction. This new process will result in certificates of correction being published quicker electronically on the USPTO's web site as compared to their paper publication and the listing of the certificates of correction in the Official Gazette of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office - Patents (Official Gazette). Under the newly automated process, each issue of certificates of correction will be electronically published on the USPTO web site at http://www.uspto.gov/web/patents/certofcorrect, and will also subsequently be listed in the Official Gazette (and in the Official Gazette Notices posted at http://www.uspto.gov/web/offices/com/sol/og) approximately three weeks thereafter. The listing of certificates of correction in the Official Gazette will include the certificate's date of issuance. On the date on which the listing of certificates of correction is electronically published on the USPTO web site: (1) the certificate of correction will be entered into the file wrapper of the patent and will be available to the public; (2) a printed copy of the certificate of correction will be mailed to the patentee or the patent's assignee; and (3) an image of the printed certificate of correction will be added to the image of the patent on the patent database at http://www.uspto.gov/patft. Dissemination of all other paper copies of the certificate of correction will occur shortly thereafter. The date on which the USPTO makes the certificate of correction available to the public (e.g., by adding the certificate of correction to the file wrapper) will be regarded as the date of issuance of the certificate of correction, not the date of the certificate of correction appearing in the Official Gazette. Certificates of correction published in the above-described manner will provide the public with prompt notice and access and is consistent with the legislative intent behind the American Inventors Protection Act of 1999. See 35 U.S.C. 10(a) (authorizing the USPTO Director to publish in electronic form). The listing of certificates of correction can be electronically accessed on the day of issuance at http://www.uspto.gov/web/patents/certofcorrect. The electronic image of the printed certificate of correction can be accessed on the patent database at http://www.uspto.gov/patft and the listing of the certificates of correction, as published in the Official Gazette three weeks later, will be electronically accessible at http://www.uspto.gov/web/offices/com/sol/og.
