Jason Harrier Participates in USPTO Panel on Patent Quality


Jason Harrier, principal at KDB, was selected to share his expertise in a USPTO panel discussion on patent quality, during the Patent Quality Forum on November 3rd in Washington D.C. The panel explored various quality programs that the USPTO has put in place under the Enhanced Patent Quality Initiative, (EPQI) and shared ideas on enhancing patent quality for the future.


Jason discussed how practitioners can take advantage of the USPTO Enhanced Patent Quality initiatives to increase consistency in examination and claims, especially in view of the USPTO guidance on 35 USC 101 rejections based on Alice Corp. v CLS Bank International. He further discussed the USPTO’s plans to adjust patent examiner timing metrics in view of new Enhanced Patent Quality initiatives, where he cited how the Post-Grant Outcomes initiative may significantly increase the material for patent examiners to review during prosecution of a patent application with a family member involved in a post-grant proceeding.


Jason was among several other panelists, including Drew Hirshfeld, Commissioner for Patents, Greg Vidovich, Associate Commissioner for Patent Quality, Daniel Shanley, Partner at Andrews Kurth Kenyon, and moderator Bryan Nese, Senior Associate at Mayer Brown LLP and Co-Chair of the Patent Committee, DC Bar P Section Steering Committee.
