Cross-IDS Matters Automatically

We often file two or more related cases. One of the most frustrating parts of prosecution is having to keep up with cross-filing references between related applications.


But the Patent Office has both data sets available. It would be amazing if we could simply indicate that two cases are related enough for cross-referencing, without having to file the references, and sometimes office actions and responses.
