USPTO Talk is a weblog with information about the current state of patent prosecution at the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. Its purpose is to express some observations about and experiences with the patent office and the patent examining corps.
This site is provided by a current practitioner. The views expressed here are solely the product of the practitioner, and are not necessarily shared by the practitioner’s firm or clients. Also, the experiences described here do not represent any particular patent application, examiner, art unit, or interaction, but are generally drawn from the experiences of the practitioner over years of practice.
IMPORTANT: The views expressed here are not to be construed as legal advice. Only an experienced patent practitioner who legally represents you and is familiar with your circumstances can properly advise you. Relying on the views expressed here in the context of a particular legal decision is a terrible idea.
