Box 1450, Alexandria, VA 22313–1450; by telephone at 571–272– 5517; or by email at Nathanya.Ferguson@uspto.gov with ‘‘0651–0044 comment’’ in the subject line. Additional information about this collection is also available at http:// www.reginfo.gov under ‘‘Information Collection Review.’’ SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract Pursuant to the Inventors’ Rights Act of 1999, 35 U.S.C. 297, and implementing regulations at 37 CFR part 4, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is required to provide a forum for the publication of complaints concerning invention promoters and responses from the invention promoters. Upon receipt of a complaint, the USPTO will forward it to the inventor promoter for a response. The USPTO does not investigate these complaints or participate in any legal proceedings against invention promoters or promotion firms. Under the Act, USPTO is responsible for making complaints and responses available to the public on the USPTO’s website. A complaint submitted to the USPTO must be clearly marked, or otherwise identified, as a complaint. The complaint must include: (1) The name and address of the complaint; (2) the name and address of the invention promoter; (3) the name of the customer; (4) the invention promotion services offered or performed by the invention promoter; (5) the name of the mass media in which the invention promoter advertised providing such services; (6) and example of the relationship between the customer and the invention promoter; and (7) a signature of the complainant. Identifying information is necessary so that the USPTO can both forward the complaint to the invention promoter or promotion firm as well as notify the complainant that the complaint has been forwarded. Complainants should understand that the complaints will be forwarded to the invention promoter for response and that the complaint and response will be made available to the public as required by the Inventors’ Rights Act. If the USPTO does not receive a response PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 3417 from the invention promoter, the complaint will be published without a response. The USPTO does not accept under this program complaints that request confidentiality. This information collection contains one form, Complaint Regarding Invention Promoter (PTO/SB/2048A), which is used by the public to submit a complaint under this program. This form is available for download from the USPTO website. Use of this form is not mandatory, and the complainant may submit his or her complaint without the form via any of the approved methods of collection as long as the complainant includes the necessary information and the submission is clearly marked as a complaint filed under the Inventors’ Rights Act. There is no associated form for submitting responses to the complaints. II. Method of Collection By mail, facsimile, or hand delivery to the USPTO. III. Data OMB Number: 0651–0044. IC Instruments and Forms: PTO/SB/ 2048. Type of Review: Extension of an existing information collection. Affected Public: Individuals or households; businesses or other forprofits; and not-for-profit institutions. Estimated Number of Respondents: 22 responses per year. Estimated Time per Response: The USPTO estimates that it will take the pubic approximately between 15 minutes (0.25 hours) and 30 minutes (0.50 hours) to gather the necessary information, prepare either the form or a response to a complaint, and submit the materials to the USPTO. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 8 hours per year. Estimated Total Annual Respondent (Hourly) Cost Burden: $2,481.96 per year. The USPTO expects that paraprofessionals and independent inventors will be filing the complaints. The USPTO estimates that this group has an average hourly rate of $97.32. The professional hourly rate for paraprofessionals is $145 per hour, as listed in the 2016 National Utilization and Compensation Survey Report published by the National Association of Legal Assistants. The hourly rates for independent inventors is $49.64, which is the average of the mean rates for Engineers ($47.74) and Scientists ($51.53). The rates for Engineers (BLS 17–2199) and Scientists (BLS 19–2099) are based on the 2017 Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) National Occupation E:\FR\FM\12FEN1.SGM 12FEN1
