Executive Summary

PATENT PUBLICATION BEFORE PATENT ISSUANCE UNDER HR 1733 would be accompanied by provisional protection rights that could extend the life of a patent to 19-1/2 years, Assistant Secretary of Commerce and Commissioner of Patents & Trademarks Bruce Lehman said at a House Judiciary/Courts & Intellectual Property Subcommittee hearing June 8. The bill, introduced May 25 by Subcommittee Chairman Carlos Moorhead (R-Calif.) and Rep. Pat Schroeder (D-Colo.), provides for publication of patent applications 18 months after the earliest filing date and provisional protection rights during the period between publication of the patent and the patent grant.
