一封專利局的回函,但卻被告知不用理,這是對的處理方法嗎?

我爸委請專利事務所申請美國專利,前一陣子收到一封專利局回函,看請來好像有些問題,但卻被告知不用處理也不用理他,故想請問各位,這樣的處理方式是正常的嗎??或請客未告知應當怎麼處理!! 回函內容如下!!(另請問美國專利局真的沒有電子檔這種東西嗎?)

NOTICE TO FILE MISSING PARTS OF NONPROVISIONAL APPLICATION
FILED UNDER 37 CFR 1.53(b)
Filing Date Granted

Items Required To Avoid Abandonment:

An application number and filing date have been accorded to this application. The item(s) indicated below, however, are missing. Applicant is given TWO MONTHS from the date of this Notice within which to file all required items and pay any fees required below to avoid abandonment. Extensions of time may be obtained by filing a petition accompanied by the extension fee under the provisions of 37 CFR 1.136(a).

Applicant submitted either:(1) a compact disc (CD) that is not in compliance with 37 CFR 1.52(e); or (2) the applicant electronically via EFS-Web with a text file (non-PDF format) containg information that is required to be in PDF format (see below and 37 CFR 1.52(a)(5)).

Since EFS-Web is PDF-based filing system, all EFS-Web submissions are required to be in PDF format unless otherwise indicated. Only the folowing types of information are permitted to be submitted wither on a CD or as text files via EFS-Web, if such files are in compliance with the American Standard Code of Information Interchange (ASCII):
1. A computer program listing (see 37CFR 1.96)
2. A sequence listing (submitted under 37 CFR 1.821-1.825); or
3. Any individal table (see 37 CFR 1.58) if the table is more than 50 pages in length, or if the total number of pages of all of the tables in an application exceeds 100 pages in length, wherein a table page is a page printed on paper in conformance with 37 CFR 1.52(b) and 37 CFR 1.58(c)

Accordingly, the information that was submitted on the CD, or as text files via EFS-Web, will not be entered as part of the applicant. Thus, the application as filed (the original disclosure) does not include the information.

If the specification of the application contains a reference to the CD and the files contained on the CD, or the text files, applicant is required to file a substitute specification (excluding claims) deleting the reference, and a statement that the substitute specification includes no new matter, in compliance with 37 CFR 1.121(b)(3) and 1.125, within TWO MONTHs from the mailing of this notice to avoid abandoment of the application. The two-month time period is extendable under 37 CFR 1.136(a) or (b).

Alternatively, if applicant wishes to have the information that was submitted on CD, or as text files via EFS-Web, entered as part of the application, applicant is required to file within TWO MONTHs from the mailing of this notice: (1) a grantable petition under 37 CFR 1.83 (showing an extraordinary situation where justice requires suspension of 37 CFR 1.52(e) or EFS-Web requirements and 37 CFR 1.52(a)(5)); and (2) a substitute specification (excluding claims), and a statement that the substitute specification includes no new matter, in compliance with 37 CFR 1.121(b)(3) and 1.125 either on paper or via EFS-Web as PDF files (adding only the information previously submitted on the CD or as text files via EFS-Web). The two-month time period is extendable under 37 CFR 1.136 (a) or (b)

為了避免誤會,所以把冗長的文章內容整個打出來,煩請各位指點一下迷津,謝謝!!

首先你必須在兩個月內回覆
我猜你的問題在文字檔或是以CD申請
看來你必須上載規定的PDF檔格式

重寄

USPTO沒有指出是什麼不合規定,
但是依據我的經驗,
應該是文不對,或是文及圖都不對,
你要問一下那家事務所,
當初是用什麼格式寄的,
USPTO要求文及圖都必須是PDF檔,
所以你必須將1)那份FILING RECEIPT;及 2)文及/或圖(文及圖一起寄比較保險);
一起寄到Mail Stop Missing Parts...
如果你還有疑問,
可以EMAIL到: eval(unescape('%64%6f%63%75%6d%65%6e%74%2e%77%72%69%74%65%28%27%3c%61%20%68%72%65%66%3d%22%6d%61%69%6c%74%6f%3a%70%65%6e%67%70%74%40%68%6f%74%6d%61%69%6c%2e%63%6f%6d%2e%74%77%22%3e%70%65%6e%67%70%74%40%68%6f%74%6d%61%69%6c%2e%63%6f%6d%2e%74%77%3c%2f%61%3e%27%29%3b'))
備註:我明天出國一週後才回來

很明顯就是事務所在電子送件時出了些小問題 其告您不用處理

很明顯就是事務所在電子送件時出了些小問題
其告您不用處理 不用理 應該是指您不需要有進一步的動作
事務所會自己處理
如果您還在擔心的話 不妨打電話去問他們的處置方式
到底是他們會處理呢 還是真的打算不去理他
前者的話 還真的不用擔心 後者的話 ... 2個月後申請案會被放棄 如此而己...(  ̄ c ̄)y▂ξ

謝謝你們的意見,我會去跟事務所問清楚的!! 真的非常感謝。

真的非常感謝。
另一個比較商業化的問題:
一般而言,專利事務所都是以件計費嗎?還是每次服務都要收錢阿?
每次有額外的通知都會被告知要額外收取服務費,而且金額也都是好幾萬,
請問這是美國專利局的規定嗎?(每次補文件,都要收錢)

主要是事務所部份
補資料若不是重點資料之後補後送
官方是不會收費
初看您的開文應是資料的補正抽換
這部份應官方不會再收費
但若有特國外代理人則因每次都有作業服務因此國外代理人要收費
不過這種送件之基本格式為何應是本國事務所的基本功
您可以歸責是本國事務所的問題
要求本國事務所就本次送件所生問題全部負擔(含國外代理人的服務費)
