Peer To Patent, Final Results for Pilot One – “Collaboration Is Key to Improving Patent Quality”

Peertopatent.Tumblr

Peer To Patent, Final Results for Pilot One.

When New York Law School’s Center for Patent Innovations last published a report on the Peer To Patent pilot in June 2009, we had incomplete data, as the work of our citizen reviewers was still underway. We now present the full results of that first pilot (June 15, 2007 to June 15, 2009) and those results demonstrate why the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office elected to conduct a second Peer To Patent pilot beginning in the Fall of 2010.

In addition to numerical analysis, narratives for patent applications are provided to illustrate the level of collaboration that took place within the reviewing community. Not only do these specific narratives highlight how patent examiners applied the reviewer submitted prior art, they also demonstrate the importance of community discussion. In essence, we found that collaboration is key to successful participation.
