uspto pdf electronic filing system podcast

If you are interested in patent wonkiness – head on over to Rethink(IP) to listen to an interview/podcast Steve Nipper and Matt Buchanan had with Carl Oppedahl on the new electronic patent application filing system being rolled out by the USPTO on March 17, 2006.

According to Carl’s comments (he was a beta tester of the new system), this time the USPTO has gotten it right: easy to use, accountability and reliability.

It’s a long conversation (50 minutes) but well worth the listen!
