(how many wiki are being started and dropped, sharing GreatFeatures - thinking about, as a whole wiki community, how to deal with spam.

Peer to Patent

May 14, 2006

Its tough for the USPTO to get up to speed in all areas for which patent applications are sent to them. That probably has something to do with why they are so backed up and often have to rubber stamp applications without a more in depth review. To address this problem, the USPTO has launched a pilot program called “Peer to Patent” which employs the JotSpot wiki engine. The idea is to open up the review process and invite the community to help dig up prior art and provide other assistance to the examiners.
