Double Patenting, Terminal Disclaimer, and Restriction Practice Subcommittee

This subcommittee will look into issues in Double Patenting, Terminal Disclaimer, and Restriction Practice. The subcommittee is currently exploring and comparing the “unity” standard utilized in most of the world and US restriction practice to see if one route provides greater claim scope than others. Future projects may include a statistical study of how often traversing a restriction is successful and how often rejoinder occurs.
