In extraordinary times, sometimes the ordinary is comforting, so we want to bring you a short newsletter this month and provide some operating details for the major patent agencies in the US.
First, we hope all our readers are well. And if not well, we hope you quickly achieve a complete recovery from whatever ails you.
Second, our firm is fully operational – and operating almost completely remotely. We are available at your convenience for video and audio conferencing.
Third, the USPTO closed its doors to the public, but will continue video and audio interviews and oral hearings. Similarly, the Federal Circuit has closed its doors to the public and moved to audio oral hearings. The Supreme Court has postponed all arguments.
Finally, we present two case summaries today:
- Another patent ineligible technology – adding to the growing list
- Waiver of 315b challenge when not raised at the Board
As always, we welcome feedback and suggestions about this newsletter to ensure we are meeting the needs and expectations of our readers. So if you have topics you wish to see explored, please reach out to me.
