John Neumann (au)

USPTO patent examiners accomplish this by comparing applications to äóģprior artäó¯ -- existing patents and applications in the U.S. and abroad, and nonpatent literature, such as scientific articles. Thorough prior art searches help ensure the validity of granted patents. This report (1) describes the challenges examiners face in identifying relevant prior art; (2) describes how selected foreign patent offices have addressed challenges in identifying relevant prior art; and (3) assesses the extent to which USPTO has taken steps to address challenges in identifying relevant prior art. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
