The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is working on eMod, the eCommerce Modernization project, an exciting new project to improve the electronic patent application process by modernizing its filing and viewing systems. During this webinar, we will share additional information about the USPTO eMod Text Pilot Program, which will start in summer 2016. We will discuss the benefits of filing in text, and what that means for the overall patent application filing and management process. 




  • Examine current patent application filing and viewing process
  • Identify how to participate in the eMod Text Pilot Program 
  • Discuss how the findings from the eMod Text Pilot Program will affect the patent application filing and viewing process in the future
