USPTO introduced a new Glossary Pilot Program and issued new MPEP. Under the Glossary Pilot Program scheduled to begin June 2, 2014, applications accepted into the program will receive expedited processing and be placed on an examiner's special docket prior to the first office action and have special status up to issuance of a first office action. The program requires participants to include a glossary section in the patent application specification to define terms used in the patent claims.
United States Patent and Trademark Office issued new guidelines on patent eligibility.
