USPTO Publishes Materials from Second Anniversary AIA Forum

  • Filings made over the past several months with tips for compliance and how to avoid pitfalls
  • Prioritized examination (aka Track One)
  • Preissuance submissions
  • Inventor's oath/declaration
  • Supplemental examination
  • Micro-entity discount
