Summary:
35 USC 122(c) needs to be repealed and replaced with a law that will allow a more efficient and effective examination process. The current legal requirement to prevent third parties from participating in the patent examination process is no longer in the best public interest. Peer to Patent has shown us that public participation works, but the next step is impossible until 122(c) is at least amended. An examination process that utilizes the expertise of the industries in which applications lie has now become essential in the very difficult to examine fields of software, pharmaceuticals, and business methods.
