Copies of Patent Application Records

Earlier this summer, the USPTO announced that all copies of patent application records would be provided only in electronic form.  That change has been repealed.

Now, unless otherwise requested, certified copies of patent application records provided pursuant to 37 CFR 1.19 (b) will be produced with a paper certification statement, continuing the practice in effect prior to July 30, 2004. The certification statement will include an embossed seal and original signature.
