Patent Grants

Jim Ruttler, Patent Attorney

Posted Thursday, May 27, 2010 by Jim Ruttler

It is now widely acknowledged that the Patent Office is beginning to grant more patents than last year and perhaps any point in history. Attorney Dennis Crouch at Patently-O has researched and published the following report and statistics:

My own personal experience has been that Examiners have been much more willing to work with applicants to suggest amendments and work towards identifying allowable subject matter. If the trend continues, within a few years we may just actually get to a point where an applicant can have an issued patent within a year or two of filing.
