409.03(e) Statement of Last Known Address [R-08.2012]

[Editor Note: This MPEP section is not applicable to applications filed on or after September 16, 2012.]

An application filed pursuant to pre-AIA 37 CFR 1.47 must state the last known address of the nonsigning inventor.

That address should be the last known address at which the inventor customarily receives mail. See MPEP § 602.08(a). Ordinarily, the last known address will be the last known residence of the nonsigning inventor.

Inasmuch as a nonsigning inventor is notified that an application pursuant to pre-AIA 37 CFR 1.47 has been filed on his or her behalf, other addresses at which the nonsigning inventor may be reached should also be given.
