Petition.ai LLC (“Petition.ai”) is excited to announce the launch of the first comprehensive searchable database of publicly available patent petition documents filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”). The searchable database includes 500,000 documents from 200,000 patent applications filed since 2013. The documents include petitions, requests for reconsideration, and most importantly, petition decisions.

Each year, tens of thousands of petitions are filed with the USPTO’s Office of Petitions. A petition is often a signed, written request submitted to the Office of Petitions seeking some form of relief related to the filing of patent applications.

By utilizing Petition.ai’s extensive searchable database, patent attorneys, patent agents, and their support teams can efficiently search through hundreds of thousands of petition documents to readily find ones with similar issues and/or fact patterns. As a result, patent professionals will be able to more quickly and easily craft a petition with an increased likelihood of being granted on the first attempt, potentially avoiding the need to request reconsideration of a denial or dismissal.

If you have to file a petition in an unusual situation, Petition.ai is the closest thing to the Holy Grail that I’ve seen, remarked Jeremy R. Kriegel, Partner at Marshall Gerstein & Borun LLP.

Petition grant rates vary dramatically from 65%–98% across law firms. We believe law firms which use our database will be able to significantly increase their chances of getting a petition granted on the first attempt while saving time and effort, relieving stress and reducing uncertainty, noted Michael Spector, Petition.ai’s Co-Founder.

Facts, filters, and features of the database:

  • Facts - The searchable database includes 500,000 petition documents from 200,000 patent applications filed since 2013.

With the launch of its comprehensive searchable database of patent petition documents, Petition.ai begins its quest to build a robust portfolio of patent-related databases. Petition.ai will continue to work closely with patent attorneys to develop new databases to help improve the efficiency and results of prosecuting patent applications.

All applicants deserve to have their petitions treated in a consistent manner…. Inconsistency within the USPTO’s petition practice should not be used as a poor excuse for further inconsistency.

USPTO After Final Petition Statistics – Are Things as Bad as They Appear? (Part VI)

The USPTO apparently gives each Technology Center the discretion as to when and how they choose to process petitions, and even who has authority to decide such petitions. This results in significant TC-to-TC variation in standards of review, petition pendency, and grant rates, making it difficult for practitioners to know what to expect when filing similar types of petitions in various TCs.
