For many years, the USPTO has been able to place patent applications on hold for an indefinite amout of time without any oversight.
Some applications have been placed on hold for decades, without any explanation to the patent holder and some applications have been rejected without the patent applicant ever knowing that their patent was given a mark of discrimination.
