A: Computing AIPA Patent Term Adjustment (PTA) is a complex task. PatentTerm Online can greatly simplify the process, but a proper understanding of our calculator and the pertinent AIPA rules is required to achieve consistently accurate results.
To introduce our calculator, for each new account, we recommend users attend a free system orientation session before using PatentTerm Online. This typically takes about one hour, and can be done over the phone with an instructor, while you are working at a computer with web access.
For additional training, PatentTerm Online offers live, custom webinars providing an overview of the legal aspects of auditing PTA. Typically, sessions are scheduled on a fee basis for a group at a firm or company. We have provided PTA training for hundreds of patent professionals, and our programs are usually very well received.
