I would like to commend USPTO Director David Kappos for the decision to rescind the proposed rules on continuation applications and claims originally published in the Federal Register in August 2007. In particular, I welcome the motivation behind the decision to ensure that patent rules are in place “that are responsive to its applicants’ needs and help bring their products and services to market.” In that spirit we look forward to working with Director Kappos to effectively address the concerns that gave rise to the proposed rules – namely to improve examination efficiency, enhance the quality of examination, and manage the growing backlog of unexamined applications.
