This is the first of a series of emails that showcases features of Anticipat so that you can get the most out of the products. Today, we review the daily recap emails.
At Anticipat, we stay current on all newly decided ex parte PTAB appeals so you don’t have to. By default, we deliver subscribers a recap email of these decisions, after a few days for processing. In addition to seeing every ground of rejection at issue and every outcome decided for each case, you’ll also see the tags or the specific rationale the Board relied on in its outcome. See below image.
As you can see, the recap email provides a comprehensive summary of all the grounds of rejection and outcomes for the day’s decisions.
If receiving an email recap for each day’s ex parte appeals is information overload, you can customize your emails according to your personal preferences. Simply click on the profile link, and select the specific filters that are interesting to you and your practice.
For example, say you are interested in decisions where the Board reversed a rejection Section 101 – patent-ineligible subject matter. By clicking “101 – Patent-Ineligible Subject Matter” under “Issues” and “Reversed” under “Outcomes”, you can be alerted via email only when decisions for that day include a reversed Section 101 rejetion.
Other possible filters are for specific art units and examiners. This can come in handy as you are preparing a response for a specific Examiner to get alerted to a case where the Board decided the very same rejection you are faced with.
If you do not want any notifications by email, simply select the radio button “No notifications”.
