Put Your Patent in the Fast Track

Starting May 4, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office will allow inventors to expedite their patent prosecution. The first 10,000 inventors willing to pay an extra $4000 (no discount for small entities) will be able to place their patent applications in a “Fast Track.” The new service aims to achieve a final disposition (rejection or allowance) within one year.
