Increase your odds of a favorable patent prosecution.
With some effort and planning it is possible to direct a patent application to a more likely favorable Art Unit within the USPTO, which will substantially raise the odds of a favorable (and more cost-efficient) patent prosecution.
Thoughtful characterization of the invention to ensure review by a favorable technology center group is the goal.
Watch this on-demand webinar recording as panelists Gene Quinn, president and founder of IPWatchdog.com, Mark Nowotarski, founder of Markets, Patents & Alliances LLC, and patent attorney, Megan McLoughlin, product director for LexisNexis PatentAdvisor® discuss techniques for drafting patent applications to intentionally influence assignment to a particular group of patent examiners within the USPTO.
