IDS preparation

An information disclosure statement (or IDS) refers to the submission of relevant background art to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) by an applicant for a patent during the patent prosecution process. This is a compulsory step and all the applications submitted before the USPTO is required to be accompanied with IDS disclosing prior arts relevant to the patentability of the applicant’s invention. We assist our client’s in preparing a ready to file IDS at the USPTO.
