Quarterly Update to Annual Listing of Foreign Government Subsidies on Articles of Cheese Subject to an In-Quota Rate of Duty, 66098-66099 [E9-29729]

Download as PDF 66098 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 238 / Monday, December 14, 2009 / Notices attempted to limit the appeal to fewer than all of the rejected claims by submitting an identification of claims being appealed that did not include these rejected claims in the notice of appeal or the appeal brief.’’ 37 CFR 41.31 does not provide for an identification of the claims whose rejection is being appealed. A notice of appeal that does not identify any claims would be accepted as an appeal of all of the rejected claims, unless the appeal brief indicates otherwise. Therefore, if appellant files a notice of appeal and appeal brief that do not clearly limit the appeal to fewer than all of the rejected claims, all of the rejected claims would be considered to be on appeal. The BPAI will have the jurisdiction to review the examiner’s decision as to all of the rejected claims and all of the grounds of rejection set forth by the examiner. If a notice of appeal does not identify the claims on appeal and its appeal brief contains inconsistency regarding whether all of the rejected claims are being appealed (e.g., appellant lists fewer than all of the rejected claims in the status of claims section of the appeal brief and then lists all of the rejected claims in the grounds of rejection to be reviewed on appeal section, or other sections, of the appeal brief), all of the rejected claims would be considered to be on appeal. If a notice of appeal does not identify the claims on appeal and all of the sections of its appeal brief consistently identify fewer than all of the rejected claims being appealed, then the appeal brief has clearly limited the appeal to fewer than all of the rejected claims and the non-appealed rejected claims will be deemed canceled by operation of the filing of such an appeal brief as of the date on which the appeal brief is filed. The proposed procedure will apply to notices of appeal and appeal briefs filed under 37 CFR 41.31 and 41.37. Similarly, the proposed procedure will also apply to notices of appeal or cross appeal and appeal briefs filed by patent owners in ex parte and inter partes reexamination proceedings. Dated: December 8, 2009. David J. Kappos, Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office. [FR Doc.
