REQUESTS FILED THE WEEK OF MAY 10TH

Scott Daniels | May 19, 2010

Reexamination requests are typically reported in the Official Gazette approximately three months after filing. Such a delay in reporting requests, particularly requests that involve copending District Court litigation, is too long.

In some cases, the information available from the Patent Office is still incomplete.
