The USPTO plans to hold a First-Inventor-to-File Roundtable on Thursday, September 6, 2012 from 1:30 to 4:30 pm Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) in the Madison Auditorium at the USPTO’s Alexandria campus. The Roundtable provides an opportunity for the USPTO to gather public feedback over its recently proposed rules and proposed examination guidelines for implementing the first-inventor-to-file provisions of the America Invents Act (AIA).
All are welcome to attend and comment. If you’d like your commentary to be scheduled, however, the USPTO urges you to contact Janet Gongola. The USPTO’s AIA micro-site will also be webcasting the event live.
Written comments regarding the USPTO’s first-inventor-to file proposals can be submitted via email until October 5, 2012. Email comments about the proposed rules to firstname.lastname@example.org. Email comments about the proposed examination guidelines to email@example.com.
