Prof. Chris Turoski Advocates for Accessibility and Transparency at US Patent & Trademark Office

Professor Chris Turoski requested the US Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) increase accessibility and transparency of case law decisions cited in the USPTO Manual of Examination Procedure (MPEP). Turoski's letter points out some case law decisions cited in the MPEP are not readily available to the public via electronic means. Turoski asks the USPTO to consider options for the MPEP available without accessing premium subscription-based online legal databases such as Lexis or Westlaw.
