Pre-Issuance Submissions by Third Parties – America Invents Act

Third parties are given more opportunity to submit documents during pendency of a patent application through section 8 of the America invents act. The time for submission is extended as well as the third-party’s ability to comment on each document submitted. Document types for submission are unchanged and include patents, published patent applications and other printed publications.
