Accelerated Exmination Search

Rights Reality offers pre-examination searches that comply with the recently enacted USPTO procedures for Accelerated Examinations. The new procedures, which became effective on August 26, 2006 allows the USPTO to advance an application out of turn for examination if the applicant files a grantable petition to make special under the accelerated examination program. Under the new rules, an applicant will be required to provide additional information with the petition for accelerated examination, and comply with revised procedures throughout the examination process.

The Accelerated Examination Search greatly assists in the creation of an Accelerated Examination Support Document by providing the required search history, explanation of relevance for the references, and application of relevant references to your claims. Our detailed search history demonstrates that the search was conducted according to USPTO guidelines for the filing procedure. The search results are formatted to allow copy-and-paste incorporation into your Pre-Examination Search Document and Accelerated Examination Support Document.

Rights Reality provides a comprehensive Accelerated Examination Search which complies with the following requirements set forth by the USPTO:

• An identification of the field of search by US class and subclass, as well as International class. For database searches, the details of search term, logic, date of search, database covered, file & tools used.

• An identification of where each claim limitation in the patent application is found in the cited prior art references.
