EFS: A Modest Draft Proposal


"The USPTO is urged in the strongest terms immediately to set up a web-based system that would allow a filer to e-file, through a web page, a PDF or TIF copy of what the filer would otherwise have faxed to the central fax number at 703-872-9306. Such a system would be extremely popular with filers on its own terms. Such a system would permit a low-stakes accumulation of experience with PDFs that is not easy to obtain any other way. Such a system permits getting "a toe in the water" for the USPTO regarding web-based filing of PDFs and TIFs and will give objective data as to adoption rates of web-based PDF and TIF filings. . . ."
