Defense Science Board; Notice of Federal Advisory Committee Meetings, 67161 [2014-26678]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 218 / Wednesday, November 12, 2014 / Notices III. Request for Information on Electronic Receipt and Hosting of Crowdsourced Prior Art Notice of Federal Advisory Committee meetings. ACTION: The USPTO wants to ensure that the best prior art is available to the examiner during examination. Because this information often resides with the technical and scientific community, crowdsourcing may be a promising way to uncover hard-to-find prior art, especially non-patent literature. A growing number of organizations from a wide range of industries have expressed a willingness to help the USPTO with its crowdsourcing efforts by pledging to provide public product documentation, educational materials, and other forms of non-patent literature. Accordingly, the USPTO issued a Request for Information (RFI) titled ‘‘Crowdsourced Non-Patent Literature Hosting’’ (Solicitation Number: PTOHMB201501), on October 9, 2014, seeking information from qualified firms capable of electronically receiving and potentially hosting the materials that have been pledged to the USPTO through the above-described crowdsourcing effort. Detailed information on the RFI is available at http://www.uspto.gov/about/vendor_ info/current_acquisitions/index.jsp. At the roundtable, the USPTO seeks to build on information received in response to the RFI to further explore ways the USPTO can leverage existing private sector solutions for the electronic receipt and hosting of crowdsourced materials as a means to provide prior art to examiners. Any formal responses to the RFI must be submitted in writing in accordance with the instructions set forth therein and not as written comments in response to this notice. After the close of the RFI comment period, information about the roundtable discussion on the RFI will be made available at http://www.uspto.gov/ patents/init_events/crowdsourcing_ roundtable_20141202.jsp. Dated: November 6, 2014. Michelle K. Lee, Deputy Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Deputy Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
