What Is The Patent Prosecution Process?
After the nonprovisional utility patent application or nonprovisional design patent application is filed at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), it is reviewed by a patent examiner to ensure that the claimed invention meets all patentability requirements. This process is called “prosecution.” During the prosecution process, the examiner will review your application and any prior art to determine if the patent application meets all relevant standards.
It is expected that you will receive one or more communications from the USPTO about the nonprovisional utility patent application. The communications can come in the form of objections and rejections relating to several possible issues. If a patent application is rejected, then the applicant can appeal the decision to the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.
