Back to P2P Website | About CPR

The essence of the Community Patent Review (CPR) project is to provide the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) with material that may be helpful to their examiners in making determinations of patentability for a patent application under review. The following links lead to information that may be helpful to peers participating in this process who require a better understanding of patent concepts underlying the CPR.
