Read Competitor Provisional Patent Applications
The USPTO has developed the patent application retrieval process, PAIR for use by the public. The public PAIR allows interested individuals to follow the prosecution of any published United States Patent application. This includes patent office communications and office actions, attorney responses and copies of some priority documents (e.g. provisional patent applications). Simple enter public pair, enter the published patent application number or serial number and choose the Continuity Data tab. This tab provides a hypertext link to most priority documents. Any questions, contact us at Patent Finds.
