Number of Respondents: 11.994 responses per year. Average Hours per Response: The USPTO estimates that it will take the public between an estimated 6 minutes (0.10 hours) to 165.30 hours to complete an individual form in this collection. Burden Hours: 1,474,449 hours. Cost Burden: $54,307,175 per year. Needs and Uses: The public will use this information collection to petition the Board to seek the institution of—and to participate in—inter partes reviews, post-grant reviews, covered business method patent reviews, and derivation proceedings. The Board disseminated information that it collections (unless filed under seal) through various publications and databases. This information collection includes the filings of the parties and decisions and orders by the Board in trials and derivation proceedings. Opinions authored by the Board have varying degrees of authority attached to them. There are precedential opinions which, when published, are binding and provide the criteria and authority that the Board will use to decide all other factually similar cases (until the opinion is overruled or changed by statute). There are informative opinions, which are non-precedential and illustrate the norms of Board decision-making for the public. There are representative opinions, which are non-precedential and are publicly available opinions that are not designed as precedential or informative. Since public policy favors a widespread publication of opinions, the Board publishes all publicly available opinions, even if the opinions are not binding precedent upon the Board. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profits; not-for-profit institutions. Frequency: On occasion.

    The Department of Commerce will submit to the Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of 
information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act.
    Agency: United States Patent and Trademark Office, Commerce.
    Title: Matters Related to First Inventor to File.
    OMB Control Number: 0651-0071.
    Form Number(s): None.
    Type of Request: Regular.
    Number of Respondents: 23,681 responses per year.
    Average Time per Response: The USPTO expects that it will take 
between 2 and 10 hours to respond to the items in this collection, 
depending upon the instrument used. This includes the time to gather 
the necessary information, create the document, and submit the 
completed request to the USPTO.
    Burden Hours: 207,362 hours per year.
    Cost Burden: $80.40 per year.
    Needs and Uses: This information collection is necessary so that 
patent applicants and/or patentees may: (1) Provide a statement if a 
nonprovisional application filed on or after March 16, 2013, other than 
a nonprovisional international design application, claims the benefit 
of, or priority to, the filing date of a foreign, provisional, or 
nonprovisional application filed prior to March 16, 2013, and also 
contains, or contained at any time, a claim to a claimed invention that 
has an effective filing date (as defined in 37 CFR 1.109) on or after 
March 16, 2013; (2) identify the inventorship and ownership or 
obligation to assign ownership of each claimed invention on its 
effective filing date (as defined in 37 CFR 1.109) or on its date of 
invention, as applicable, in an application or patent naming one or 
more joint inventors, when necessary for purposes of a USPTO 
proceeding; and (3) show that a disclosure was by the inventor or joint 
inventor, or was by a party who obtained the subject matter from the 
inventor or a joint inventor, or that there was a prior public 
disclosure by the inventor or a joint inventor, or by a party who

or contained at any time, a claim to a claimed invention that has an 
effective filing date (as defined in 37 CFR 1.109) on or after March 
16, 2013, (or lack of such a statement) to readily determine whether 
the nonprovisional application is subject to the changes to 35 U.S.C. 
102 and 103 in the AIA. The USPTO will use the identification of the 
inventorship and ownership or obligation to assign ownership when it is 
necessary to determine whether a U.S. patent or U.S. patent application 
publication resulting from another nonprovisional application qualifies 
as prior art under 35 U.S.C. 102(a)(2) or pre-AIA 35 U.S.C. 102(e). The 
USPTO will use information concerning whether a disclosure was by the 
inventor or joint inventor, or was by a party who obtained the subject 
matter from the inventor or a joint inventor, or that there was a prior 
public disclosure by the inventor or a joint inventor, or by a party 
who obtained the subject matter
