(406) Posting a List of Patents with 37 CFR 1.607(d) Notices on the PTO Web Site When an applicant seeks to provoke an interference with a patent, 37 CFR 1.607(d) requires that the patentee be notified when the attempt to provoke the interference is first made. After notifications under 37 CFR 1.607(d) are mailed, they are placed in the patented files. They then become public records. Recently, the PTO has begun receiving specific requests from members of the public for listings of patents which have had 37 CFR 1.607(d) notices mailed to the patentee. To provide this service to our customers, while reducing the administrative burden of processing individual requests, the PTO will post, within the next few months, a listing of all such patents. The posting will be provided on the PTO Home Page at www.uspto.gov. The first listing will include all patents in which a 37 CFR 1.607(d) notice has been mailed since January 1, 1998. Thereafter, the listing will be updated on a quarterly basis and the quarterly posting will list all patents from the previous three months containing such notices. Inquiries regarding this matter should be directed to Magdalen Greenlief at (703) 305-8813. September 9, 1998 STEPHEN G. KUNIN Deputy Assistant Commissioner for Patent Policy and Projects [1215 OG 14]
