Patent Quality Chat

The USPTO’s Patent Quality Chat webinar series kicks off 2018 on Tuesday, Jan. 9, from noon – 1 p.m. ET to discuss “Unlocking Open Data for our Patent Customers."
We recently released our most comprehensive dataset of over 4.4 million office actions onto our Open Data Portal. USPTO data experts will discuss how you can leverage this data in bulk or by using new application program interfaces (APIs) that focus on citations used by examiners to reject claims using prior art and particular types of rejections used by examiners, such as rejections under 35 U.S.C. 101 or 35 U.S.C. 103.
The Patent Quality Chat webinar series is presented as a part of the USPTO’s continuous efforts to improve patent quality.  More information is available on the chat event page.
