According to roundtable speakers addressing whether crowdsourcing could be used to determine anticipation or obviousness during patent examination, scaling up to meet the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s (USPTO’s) proposal to use crowdsourcing as a means of expanding current third-party prior art submissions could be difficult. Additional information about USPTO’s roundtable notice appears in the “News Bytes” section of Issue 75 of this Bulletin. Most of the speakers reportedly operated or now operate Websites that either post patent applications or the claim interpretations in patent applications so that experts can identify and submit documents relating to prior art. Other speakers apparently questioned whether third-party submissions provide a solid basis on which USPTO can build, noting that most third parties submitting under the current program—launched under an America Invents Act provision—work for companies responding to a competitor’s application. Comments on the issue must be submitted by April 25, 2014. See Bloomberg BNA The United States Law Week®, April 11, 2014.
