Modernization of EFS-Web

Fix WebADS date!

The WebADS form currently does NOT fill in the date field in the signature block, which is a huge problem: if an ADS is not properly signed, which signature includes the date, it is treated as a transmittal letter and not a proper ADS. Critically, this means that any priority claims are not (or may not be) considered.

 

Applicants should NOT be penalized for using the PTO's own systems, especially when much of the appeal of the WebADS is that there's no risk of the Office keying in priority claims incorrectly.
