As described in a recent blog
from USPTO leadership, filing in DOCX provides many benefits in the patent application process, including:
- eliminating the need to convert structured text into a PDF for filing
- instant feedback analysis to detect common errors that may otherwise delay processing an application
- automatic metadata detection and removal to support the submission of only substantive information in the file
The eCommerce Modernization (eMod) team will provide information and conduct a demo using the Patent Center
training mode, followed by a question-and-answer session. Applicants are encouraged to use the Patent Center training mode to practice filing in DOCX without saving/storing data to USPTO systems.
You will receive instructions for joining the webinar via email prior to your registered session.
