Pull Data into EPAS for Validation of Patent/Application Numbers

Now that we log into My.USPTO.gov when filing assignments as well, it should be easy to pull data from Public or Private PAIR into the Assignment system (EPAS) to ensure that assignments are correctly recorded.


During the validation step, the system should display the title and inventors of the patent/application numbers, so that the attorney can verify that the correct numbers were entered.


Erroneous recordations happen fairly regularly, and this would short circuit a lot of time and worry. It would also save Patent Office time, in unwinding recording mistakes.
