Text Searchable BPAI Opinions.

Posted in Practice Commentary by Jake Ward on August 31, 2007

In the USPTO news today:

Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences Final Decisions

Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences Final Decisions Now Text Searchable.

A text searching capability is now available for searching publicly available final decisions of the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences that are posted on the Board’s Final Decision FOIA web page, http://des.uspto.gov/Foia/BPAIReadingRoom.jsp. This web page is accessible via the Board’s web page on the USPTO’s web site.

Specifically, the database of final Board decisions that are posted on the Final Decision FOIA web page will be searched for a text string entered into a text search field and the identity of any decision(s) containing the string will be returned. . . .
