(Update: The letter has been sent. See here.)
Hello readers. If one of the things that you do for a living is filing patent applications at the USPTO, then I urge you to take a look at two documents:
- a Federal Register notice dated April 28, 2022 entitled Filing Patent Applications in DOCX Format (87 FR 25226), and
- a letter to the USPTO, that is waiting for your signature, explaining what is wrong with that Federal Register notice.
Please consider signing the letter.
