This is bad news for applicants, since only 45.2% of applications with either a Mayo or Myriad rejection ever receive an allowance.

  • The Firms with the Highest Alice Allowance Rates
    It's no secret that obtaining a software or e-commerce patent is much harder than it used to be due to the effects of Alice. Overall, only about half of applications that receive an Alice rejection will ever be allowed. However, these firms manage to do quite a bit better than that.

  • Patriotic Patents for 2017
    Here at Juristat, we occasionally like to take a step back and take a look at patents in a little more jovial manner, especially around major holidays. We've written about fun Fourth of July patents before, but now we've got a fresh batch of them for 2017. We hope you enjoy some of the fun patents we found, and that you have a safe and happy Fourth of July.

  • These are the Hardest CPC Classifications at the USPTO
    I have some bad news for the wine lovers among us: It's apparently quite difficult to get a patent in CPC Class C12G - Wine; Other Alcoholic Beverages; Preparation Thereof.
