609.05 Examiner Handling of Information Disclosure Statements

IDS submission of videos

As new forms of prior art proliferate, we have to develop some way to submit them to the PTO. For example - web video clips. It seems reasonable that EFS should be enhanced to accept this kind of submission for an IDS. Do people have ideas on this concept? What other types of media have people come across as prior art? This comment is intended as a discussion starter.

IDS/892 NPL website printouts

Please offer some examples on proper ways to site NPL printed from websites. Crossing out the website link leaves very little information in the IDS/892 NPL listing.
