The IP5 is working on implementing alerting functionality to inform users to changes in the each application in the patent family. USPTO is currently evaluating providing this alerting via email and/or via RSS feeds. Please comment and provide feedback on the preferred format for receiving alerts.
Is it possible to create a module program that connects to the main design program and in the design process finds patents and creates a list of acceptable patents for the project?
The main goal of the program is to offer the user a choice of patents for his project and to exclude conflict situations.
