Businesses are looking to protect their IP’s globally. However most of them are facing various challenges in accelerating and automating this process. Our Patent Prosecution Highway(PPH) Automation addresses these challenges and speeds up the automation process.
The Patent Prosecution Highway(PPH) fast tracks the examination process for corresponding applications filed in participating countries by allowing examiners to reuse search and examination results. Patent Prosecution Highway speeds up the examination process of patent application, reducing pendency times, as well as reducing costs and delivering significant benefits to the business.
Under the Patent Prosection Highway(PPH), when claims are determined to be allowable in the Office of First Filing(OFF), a corresponding application filed in the Office of Second Filing(OSF) may be advanced out of turn, allowing applicants to obtain patents faster.
Advantages of PPH Automation
Accelerates patent examination process
Reduces pendency time
Utilizes Search and Examination results – reduces prosecution costs
Opportunity for parallel prosecution
Reduces translation, prosecution & filing costs
A key PPH metrics – Average first action pendency – for Non-PPH is 25 months and while pendency for PPH applications is 2 – 3 months, clearly demonstrating the value – speed of prosecution. Rapidly evolving industries can leverage PPH Automation.
Examination within two to three months from the grant of the PPH request provided the application has completed all its pre-exam processing and is ready for examination.
Manage all you Non-PCT and PCT-PPH applications with single user interface
Decreased Prosecution costs
Greater Efficiency – as more than 90 percent of PPH cases are allowed. Typical allowance rate for non-PPH cases is less than 50 percent.
No Petition Fee – The US Patent and Trademark Office(USPTO) eliminated the petition fee in May 2010 making Patent Prosecution Highway even more cost effective for users.
Shorter pendency time translates to reduced prosecution costs, more efficient/parallel prosecution and no Additional fees.
