It has recently been disclosed that the USPTO, for many years, has been designating some patents for discriminatory treatment - secretly placing them on hold - for an indefinite amount 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.
Please join us in seeking meaningful congressional oversight of this program and its effects on patent applicants. By adding your name, you can stand with the many inventors who deserve transparency in the patent application process.
