Consumer and Public Interest Groups Back New U.S. Patent Rules That Would Curtail Abusive Behavior By Applicants

PUBPAT, as part of a coalition of consumer advocacy and public interest groups, has filed legal papers to support new U.S. Patent Office (USPTO) rules that would curtail abusive behavior by patent applicants and improve patent quality. The coalition filed an amici brief with the District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia supporting the rules in December 2007 and another with the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in July 2008.
