  • Firm News

On September 8, 2022, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) announced that it created a new electronic Petition (“ePetition”) resource page. The new ePetition resource page is available at:  https://www.uspto.gov/patents/apply/applying-online/epetition-resource-page  According to the USPTO, the ePetition resource page has “a fresher look,” is “easier to navigate,” and contains updated content. 

The USPTO also announced that it created two new petition forms:  (1) Form PTO/SB/458, for petitions to accept an unintentionally delayed foreign priority claim; and (2) Form PTO/SB/459, for petitions to restore the benefit of a provisional application or to restore priority to a foreign application. 

The USPTO also updated Form PTO/SB/445, for petitions to accept unintentionally delayed benefit claims to provisional applications.  The updated form also pertains to delayed claims to nonprovisional applications and to international applications (including international design applications) that designate the U.S.

The new and updated forms are available at:  https://www.uspto.gov/patents/apply/forms
