New continuation rules publishedAugust 21, 2007

As noted yesterday, the new continuation rules have been published in today's issue of the Federal Register.

The bulk of the publication is responses to the numerous comments sent to the USPTO after the rules were initially published in January 2006. The introductory material explains the gist of the new rules, and runs from page 46716-44, with the text of the new rules begins on page 46835.

More analysis to come once we've had a chance to fully review the new rules.
