Cantor Colburn Client Alert: Post Prosecution Pilot Program – The P3
On July 11, 2016, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office initiated a Post-Prosecution Pilot Program (P3) to increase the interaction between applicants and the USPTO. The P3 offers a new alternative for responding to a final rejection and requires no additional fees. The P3 Program may, under the right circumstances, facilitate subsequent prosecution at a lower cost than the filing of a Request for Continues Examination (RCE).
