Additional information about this collection is also available at http://www.reginfo.gov under ‘‘Information Collection Review.’’ SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is required by 35 U.S.C. 131 and 151 to examine applications and, when appropriate, allow applications and issue them as patents. When an application for a patent is allowed by the USPTO, the USPTO issues a notice of allowance and the applicant must pay the specified E:\FR\FM\31MYN1.SGM 31MYN1 32630 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 105 / Friday, May 31, 2013 / Notices issue fee (including the publication fee, if applicable) within three months to avoid abandonment of the application. If the appropriate fees are paid within the proper time period, the USPTO can then issue the patent. If the fees are not paid within the designated time period, the application is abandoned and the applicant may petition the Director to accept a delayed payment with a satisfactory showing that the delay was unavoidable or unintentional. The Petition for Revival of an Application for Patent Abandoned Unavoidably (Form PTO/SB/61) and the Petition for Revival of an Application for Patent Abandoned Unintentionally (Form PTO/SB/64) are approved under information collection 0651–0031. The rules outlining the procedures for payment of the issue fee and issuance of a patent are found at 37 CFR 1.18 and 1.311–1.317. Chapter 25 of Title 35 U.S.C. provides for several actions that an applicant may take after issuance of a patent, including requesting a certificate of correction to correct an error or errors in the patent. If the USPTO determines that the request should be approved, the USPTO will issue a certificate of correction. For an original patent that is believed to be wholly or partly inoperative, the assignee(s) or inventor(s) may apply for reissue of the patent, which entails several formal requirements including an oath or declaration stating that the errors in the patent were not the result of any deceptive intention on the part of the reissue applicant. If additional errors are corrected after the filing of the reissue application and the original reissue oath/declaration, the reissue applicant must submit a supplemental oath or declaration stating that the additional errors also occurred without any deceptive intent. The rules outlining these procedures are found at 37 CFR 1.171–1.178 and 1.322–1.325. The public uses this information collection to request corrections of errors in issued patents, to submit applications for reissue patents, and to submit issue fee payments. The USPTO is removing the fee costs associated with the information requirements in this collection because these fees have been moved into information collection 0651–0072, which was approved by OMB in January 2013 in conjunction with the USPTO rulemaking ‘‘Setting and Adjusting Patent Fees’’ (RIN 0651– AC54).

Form Number(s): PTO/SB/44/50/51/ 51S/52/53/56/141, PTO/AIA/05/06/07, and PTOL–85B. Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Individuals or households; businesses or other forprofits; and not-for-profit institutions. Estimated Number of Respondents: 352,150 responses per year. The USPTO estimates that approximately 25% of these responses will be from small entities. Estimated Time per Response: The USPTO estimates that it will take the public from 12 minutes (0.20 hours) to 5 hours to gather the necessary information, prepare the appropriate form or document, and submit the information to the USPTO. Estimated Total Annual Respondent Burden Hours: 191,690 hours. Estimated Total Annual Respondent Cost Burden: $31,276,990. The USPTO expects that the information in this collection will be prepared by attorneys at an estimated rate of $371 per hour, except for the Issue Fee Transmittal, which will be prepared by paraprofessionals at an estimated rate of $122 per hour. Therefore, the USPTO estimates that the respondent cost burden for this collection will be approximately $31,276,990 per year.

I. Abstract

    The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is required 
by 35 U.S.C. 131 and 151 to examine applications and, when appropriate, 
allow applications and issue them as patents. When an application for a 
patent is allowed by the USPTO, the USPTO issues a notice of allowance 
and the applicant must pay the specified

[[Page 32630]]

issue fee (including the publication fee, if applicable) within three 
months to avoid abandonment of the application. If the appropriate fees 
are paid within the proper time period, the USPTO can then issue the 
patent. If the fees are not paid within the designated time period, the 
application is abandoned and the applicant may petition the Director to 
accept a delayed payment with a satisfactory showing that the delay was 
unavoidable or unintentional. The Petition for Revival of an 
Application for Patent Abandoned Unavoidably (Form PTO/SB/61) and the 
Petition for Revival of an Application for Patent Abandoned 
Unintentionally (Form PTO/SB/64) are approved under information 
collection 0651-0031. The rules outlining the procedures for payment of 
the issue fee and issuance of a patent are found at 37 CFR 1.18 and 
1.311-1.317.
    Chapter 25 of Title 35 U.S.C. provides for several actions that an 
applicant may take after issuance of a patent, including requesting a 
certificate of correction to correct an error or errors in the patent. 
If the USPTO determines that the request should be approved, the USPTO 
will issue a certificate of correction. For an original patent that is 
believed to be wholly or partly inoperative, the assignee(s) or 
inventor(s) may apply for reissue of the patent, which entails several 
formal requirements including an oath or declaration stating that the 
errors in the patent were not the result of any deceptive intention on 
the part of the reissue applicant. If additional errors are corrected 
after the filing of the reissue application and the original reissue 
oath/declaration, the reissue applicant must submit a supplemental oath 
or declaration stating that the additional errors also occurred without 
any deceptive intent. The rules outlining these procedures are found at 
37 CFR 1.171-1.178 and 1.322-1.325.
    The public uses this information collection to request corrections 
of errors in issued patents, to submit applications for reissue 
patents, and to submit issue fee payments. The USPTO is removing the 
fee costs associated with the information requirements in this 
collection because these fees have been moved into information 
collection 0651-0072, which was approved by OMB in January 2013 in 
conjunction with the USPTO rulemaking ``Setting and Adjusting Patent 
Fees'' (RIN 0651-AC54).
