In addition, this presentation contains an explanation of the USPTO’s Patent View website and the web-based issue fee form (Web 85b) which allows patent practitioners to pay issue fees and have the information automatically entered into the system. Also information is provided about the After Final Consideration Pilot Program (AFCP) 2.0 and the Quick Path IDS (QPIDS) programs being extended to September 30, 2016. There was also a discussion of a copyright case concerning clothing (Varsity Brands, Inc. et al. v. Star Athletica, LLC). The presentation can be downloaded here.
