Professor Tu Joins Patent Experts for IP Watchdog Webinar

On Thursday, March 5, 2020, West Virginia University College of Law professor Shine Tu joined other patent law experts in a webinar discussion hosted by IPWatchdog. The experts discussed types of prior art rejections by fast and slow patent examiners, how the current count system can motivate examiners to either delay or expedite patent prosecution, and how different patent examination strategies may impact patent quality.

Professor Tu has recently posted two new papers to SSRN on related topics: Patenting Fast and Slow: Examiner and Applicant Use of Prior Art and Patenting Fast and Slow: Examiner Rejections and Applicant Traversals to Non-Prior Art Rejections.
