Manuals, Patents, File Histories, DATA SERVICES

Our U.S. Code is the collection of laws enacted by the US Congress and codified by the Office of Law Revision Council that pertains to:
   Title 35 Patents,
   Title 15 Trademarks and
   Title 17 Copyrights.  

Special US Code Update Policy: This is an annual publication normally released in January. However, we do not publish a new edition each year unless there are sufficient changes to make it worthwhile for our customers. If only a few pages of laws have been been changed or added, we may publish a small update pamphlet. Which will only cost a few dollars and will fit in the front or back cover of the existing manual. Frankly, we know that keeping your attorneys and paralegals up-to-date can be very costly - we are "looking out" for your budget!

The current edition, date of publication (month and year) along with availability and prices are listed on the Book Prices & Status page (1st button below) or go directly to one of the order forms with the Order Buttons (below center and right):

Cooperative Patent Classification System

UPDATE


In September 2014, the USPTO and KIPO (Korean IP Office) inked an agreement to work together on the CPC. KIPO will fully CPC classify all new patent applications and utility models, but no mention of back-file data. The CPC system is gaining wide acceptance. It definitely has the detail needed to replace the US system, and then some. We're still studying and learning the details, and the USPTO decision for the two year overlap (CPC/USC) makes more sense to us (it gives us more time, too. 1 year down, 1 to go). The EPO seems to have completed most, if not all of the their ECLA to CPC translations and CPC assignments, and unlike the ECLA data, the EPO's CPC data have been added to DOCDB for all countries they handle. We think it's a wonderful addition to the data, and our compliments and thanks go to the EPO!
