This tab serves as a repository of major image file wrappers of the patent at issue, including:
- All Versions of Patent Specifications and Claims Amendments. This helps you trace the documents of original claims (CLM) and the amendments of claims in remark (REM) under rejection in the prosecution history.
- Rejections, Remarks, and Notice of Allowance in Prosecution History. You will find comparisons of considered prior art to the patent at issue in non-final rejection (CTNF) and final rejection (CTFR), which are also easily searchable via filtering by claim terms. In addition, you will also find intrinsic evidence from OA's for claim construction in notice of allowance (NOA), terminal disclaimer filed (DIST) and request for continued examination (RCE) in the prosecution history.
- Petitions, Response/Reply, and Decision in Post-Grant Proceedings. You will find comparisons of prior art to the patent by a third party at issue in request (or petitions,) determination (or decision of institution,) patent owner’s remarks (or response) and certificate (or final decision) in requests for reexamination (or IPR, CBM, and PGR patent reviews,) which are also easily searchable via filtering by claim terms. In addition, you will also find claim constructions in post-grant proceedings. PTAB dockets are updated on a daily basis, with reexamination files only updated when requests and certificates of reexamination occurs.
