hi there,
 
what exactly is the real function of an Disclosure Document Deposit Request, and for what it's not useful?
 
I still don't apply for my new invention, so...

A Disclosure Document can be used to demonstrate the extent of development of an invention, i.e. conception, reduction to practice, and so forth.  Alternatively an inventor can keep a proper laboratory notebook or file a provisional application for patent to accomplish the same objective.
 
The Disclosure Document program will end on Feb 1, 2007.  See http://www.uspto.gov/web/offices/com/sol/notices/71fr64636.pdf .

Concerning;
 
Department of Commerce
United States Patent Office  
37 CFR Part 1
(Document No.; PTO-P-2006-0005)
RIN 0651-AC01
 
 Changes To Eliminate the Disclosure Document
Program
 
AGENCY; United States Patent and Trademark Office, Commerce
ACTION; Final rule
 
Who in the name of Pete are these mindless wonders who are taking into their hands the right to abuse American Freedom and Americans ?
 
I can not believe what I am reading ?
 
Please, will someone tell me, am I getting this write, that while an inventor is developing a  
conception, that his witnessed and date documented lab book and notes must now be accompanied by a  
provisional patent at 100 dollars per non-obvious changes ?
 
I can only think the worse of anyone who would do this,
and then say by the number of provisional patents being filed that small entities obviously  
can afford this change.
 
I believe I will have alot more to say but please will someone tell me that I'm reading this wrong !

I suppose, you also being a mindless wonder, couldn't possibly conceive and use any other resource for public disclosure?  I guess the Internet and web hosting or any of the numerous sites that will "publish" you document for free or for very low cost hadn't occured to you.
 
Before slamming the USPTO (and the final rules which the PUBLIC was allowed to comment on) please go and learn a bit more before making yourself look more than the idiot you already appear to be.
 
By the way, you did comment on the proposed rule right?  I am sure you did.

Sorry, if I acted without thinking, are you saying that my notarized dated lab notes are valid and that I am an idiot for slamming the PTO ?
