Power of Attorney Changes

The USPTO issued a final rule amending its rules of practice to allow for more efficient processing of power of attorney and assignment documents, effective June 25, 2004.  The revised rules discontinue the practice of returning original assignment documents submitted by mail, and requires applicants to use the agency’s “Customer Number” practice if a power of attorney is to be given to more than ten registered patent practitioners.  Further, all papers received in the USPTO on paper will be scanned and transmitted electronically within the office.  (6/4/04).
