If you read through the prosecution threads here you will see many complaints similar to yours.

For me it falls into two buckets.  Many of my cases are with experienced primary examiners who, most of them (but not all) tend to find and apply reasonable art in a reasonable fashion.  I think a lot of this stems from them already knowing by heart a lot of the best references in the field.

Some cases though are with newer examiners who, most of them (but not all) tend to find art that is not very applicable and who do a poor job of explaining why they think it is applicable.  I think a lot of this stems from them not knowing the field so well, and relying on keyword searches to locate art and then attempting to hammer that triangle peg into the square hole of my claims limitations.

It could have been a coincidence, but I wonder that perhaps the phrase I typed is considered to be politically sensitive by the surveillance software, and that the typing triggered a recording of some sort of monitoring system.

as another poster mentioned,  with the amount of info they have on you allows them to do some unseemly stuff
 


To ensure safety, you need to envelope the distal portion of the monitor in aluminium foil.

Same thing with your Samsung or Sony "smart" television, which otherwise will beam a constant image of you to the federal government.

They are out there; and They are always watching.

A little bit off topic, does anyone know how they use key-stroke logging

In the IG report, they stated that unlike the old routers, the new CISCO routers maintain continuous connections (not dropping/reconnecting, rather updating within short intervals), so I was under the impression that they use the router connected/disconnected history.

They did say in the RSP Q/A .. that if your cable goes down (so you're disconnected), and you stay logged into your latop .. then later on .. when you reconnect ... it will credit you for the time you were logged into your laptop.

So, at least, they must be looking at the workstation login/logout records.

From what I heard, putting a key-log requires director approval or something and isn't something they do as a general rule except to catch people suspected of abusing t&a

Is it appropriate to ask billing requirements, partner review time, flat fee or budget for responses in an interview?
Definitely.  At one time when I was working for a small boutique, I interviewed at a much larger firm.  The larger firm offerred me what first appeared to be substantially more money.  But it was based on 2000 hrs actual billed + bonus above that.  At the boutique, my salary was based on 1800 hrs billable + bonus above that.  When I ran the numbers, I found out I would actually be making less money at the larger firm (for the same number of hours), plus I much preferred the lower required minimum.

Hi,   I am an inventor with 9 granted patents.  In last 25 years have been pleasantly surprised on those 9 patents how many strong claims were granted. And only filed 9 applications, so 100%.

In the last 2 years have been baffled on two more attempts for patents in which prior art that is so far away from my 2 new inventions in process is used for objections.  It has shaken my confidence in the patent office and their credibility.  Has something changed?  Are others here noticing that too?

In one case the prior art I have cited in the app is way way closer to the invention and more of a possible problem for my claims than the patent the examiner used to block my claims. Have been flabbergasted and baffled at how unrelated and invalid the examiner's objections are.  And I did have a patent attorney who did get my prior two patents granted on the case.

This site is great, and see it has a poll feature.  Will try to put into a poll a multiple choice question as to which patent has the least infringement to a new application to get a 2nd opinion here, if can figure out how to do that.

Just curious if others have seen a change in general too, or I just got unlucky with examiner lottery.

A little bit off topic, does anyone know how they use key-stroke logging and what sort of stuff they may decide to keep in one's "dossier?" 

I maintain a reference database, and I sometimes write a quick blurb about what is disclosed.  Usually, I write something like [surname of the first/sole inventor] is directed to [a particular field of endeavor] and discloses [xyz].  Happens that the first inventor of a particular reference has a run of the mill German last name.  When I typed the inventor's last name followed by "is directed," my screen froze, and then something popped on the screen momentarily before everything returned to normal.  It could have been a coincidence, but I wonder that perhaps the phrase I typed is considered to be politically sensitive by the surveillance software, and that the typing triggered a recording of some sort of monitoring system.

They won't use it in an aggressive manner......as long as you keep your numbers up. At least that is how it worked with the electronic gate when we moved to Alexandria.

I mean, the IG will do what the IG wants to do, regardless of the RSP or what the Office says. If the IG wants to go after people they don't need the RSP to do it. If steelie or anybody wants to watch tv while at their desk, preventing the automatic lock, the RSP isn't going to say anything negative about that. If the IG wants to go further I'm sure they can, but that's a different story and has always been the case.

To me the RSP seems to be just a cosmetic fix so that the IG and Congress don't turn up the heat. "Look, that problem that was in the papers was an isolated issue, we have addressed it, now we have all this data that X% of people are logged in at least Y% of the time, and people have to take coffee breaks and poop and some people like to read paper references so don't mess with our telework programs please."

I agree with fewyearsin. I probably sit at my desk for more than 80 hours a biweek and I think any breaks I take are reasonable, so the RSP isn't really going to affect me except to make it easier to fill out my timesheet accurately. At the same time I am not a fan of the principle of the thing and worry of more controls slowly being added piece by piece and I am not all that trusting that the people in charge will use it in a pure way (not speaking of the particular people in charge now, but just in a general sense). But there's not really anything I can about it except ensure that my RSP time and work time are pretty close.
