Summary:
Since Post-Issue is focused on already issued patents, there is no association with the USPTO. Some of our steering committee members believed there was a logical step to be taken from building a community to help find prior art to support the examination efforts of the USPTO to tapping into that same community to help find prior art relevant to issued patents that may contain claims of questionable merit. Open Invention Network was certainly interested from the perspective of the Linux environment, but they also agreed the platform needed to be neutral and be available to all. To date our focus has been on so-called software patents.
