- by admin
US Patent Office documents show the Patent Office has begun reviewing applications that do not meet the requirements for patentability, and those that do, are likely to face the possibility of being invalidated.
In fact, the Office is currently reviewing nearly 4,000 patent applications, according to a document released Tuesday.
The Office’s review process has been under review since January of this year, according the document.
“The Office has been reviewing applications for more than a year, and it has found that most patent applications are valid, although there are some exceptions,” a Patent Office spokesperson told IGN.
Many of these exceptions involve applications that involve a method of manufacture that involves a method that uses an electrical or chemical process.
This is where patent eligibility rules are concerned.
Patent eligibility is determined based on whether a patent can be asserted under the patent laws or not.
According to the Patent Act, “patents cannot be invalided solely on the basis of an exception that would otherwise be valid.”
The Patent Office is reviewing approximately 4,100 patent applications for invalidation, according its document.
“The Patent Board will not invalidate applications unless the patent application contains an erroneous claim or invalid claim that could have a material adverse effect on the commercial viability of the invention,” the spokesperson said.
Currently, the patent office has about 3,600 applications pending.
At least 2,600 of those are pending for invalidating.
The Office said it is “committed to providing timely, accurate, and up-to-date information to the public regarding patents that are eligible for review, as well as to the applicant, for the purpose of determining whether any of the invalidation proceedings are in the public interest.”
