Cantor Colburn Client Alert: USPTO Proposed Electronic Patent Issuance

December 21, 2021

Cantor Colburn offers the following Client Alert on USPTO Proposed Electronic Patent Issuance.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is proposing to implement electronic patent issuance. Under this change, the USPTO would no longer issue patents on paper; instead, it would issue patents electronically through its patent document viewing system. This would mean patents would issue sooner in electronic form, possibly with only two or three days’ notice, and that physical copies would no longer be mailed to the correspondence address as part of the patent issuance process.

Cantor Colburn’s has substantial experience representing clients in intellectual property matters. Please do not hesitate to contact David Bomzer or your Cantor Colburn attorney with any questions you may have regarding this matter and your IP in general.

Associate Maggie Russell contributed to this alert.
