The Peer-to-Patent system <http://www.peertopatent.org> is live!
Become a community reviewer and improve the quality of patents at www.peertopatent.org.
- Review and discuss patent applications submitted for open review.
- Research published resources relevant to the patent application's claims.
- Upload and explain prior art for the community.
- Annotate, evaluate, and rank each other's prior art.
- Create the "top ten" list of prior art references forwarded to the USPTO.
Anyone can participate as a reviewer <http://www.peertopatent.org/signup> , a patent application facilitator <http://dotank.nyls.edu/communitypatent/docs/info/P2P_Facilitator_Guideline.pdf> , and by sharing information about the pilot with others.
Inventors <http://dotank.nyls.edu/communitypatent/signup.html> can submit a qualified patent application for open review. Public participation is crucial to demonstrating the value of openness and making the case for greater USPTO accountability to the technical community.
For a summary of the applications posted by GE, HP, Intel, IBM and Red Hat for review click here http://dotank.nyls.edu/communitypatent/applications.html.
