The PTO is been conducting a quality survey of examination. Here are some sample questions:
6. Consider all rejections you have received over the past 3 months. How often do you think the rejections made under the following statutes were reasonable in terms of being technically, legally, and logically sound with respect to:
35 U.S.C. 101 Rejections (Rarely – . . . – Always)
35 U.S.C. 102 Rejections (Rarely – . . . – Always)
35 U.S.C. 103 Rejections (Rarely – . . . – Always)
35 U.S.C.112 Rejections, P1 (Rarely – . . . – Always)
35 U.S.C. 112 Rejections, P2 (Rarely – . . . – Always)
7. In the past 3 months, how would you rate overall examination quality.
10. What should the USPTO focus on to improve examination quality? Please be specific.
We will look forward to some interesting results. Since 103 is hot, lets do our own survey.
