MPEP Online Version

Link: In May 2004, the USPTO released a new revision of the Manual of Patent Examining Procedure (MPEP, 8th ed., rev. 2). For several months, the electronic version was only available in PDF format. Now, the Office has released each chapter of the MPEP in HTML. The HTML version is much smaller (less diskspace) and can be searched much more quickly.

A CD-ROM version of the manual is expected in mid-October. You can contact the Office of Electronic Information Products at (703) 306-2600 for more information.
