Have You Registered for USPTO Recovery Codes?

Did you know that private PAIR and EFS-Web users must Register for Recovery Codes in order to avoid being automatically frozen out of the USPTO's electronic information sytems every 18-24 months when their digital certificate expires without warning?

If not, then you too will eventually get to hear a studiously nonchalant representative from USPTO's Patent Electronic Business Center explain why it's your fault that your practice will now be suspended for at least 24 hours while the USPTO attempts to send you a new digital certificate.

Perhaps this is one USPTO procedure that could be quietly improved without a new rules package or injunction?
