Please sign a letter to Director Vidal about Patent Center

Update:  the letter has been sent.

Hello dear readers.  At you can see a letter that is now “locked” for you to sign.  This is about the USPTO’s scheduled shutdown of Private PAIR and EFS-Web on November 8, 2023.

As of right now the people who have already signed add up to over seventy signers.  They have between them paid over $38 million to the USPTO in the past decade.  They have between them prosecuted more than 32K US patents to issuance in the past decade.

I plan to close the signature system by about the early morning of Friday the 29th.  I plan to send out the letter in the middle of the day on Friday the 29th.  If you are willing to sign, please do so now rather than postponing your signature until Friday the 29th.
