Are you interested in expediting the examination of a patent application? Applicants now have a temporary opportunity to obtain expedited examination via the new glossary pilot program that went into effect on June 2, 2014, at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The goal of the glossary pilot program is to provide the USPTO the opportunity to determine the effectiveness of requiring a glossary to aid in clarifying patent claims. An applicant may apply for the glossary pilot program if the application is an original, non-reissue, non-continuation, or non-provisional utility application filed under 35 U.S.C. 111(a). The program requirements include inserting a glossary at the beginning of the detailed description of the original specification.
