New Mac-Compatible Patent Submission System

by Erica Sadun

Today, the US Patent Office launched a new electronic patent-filing system. Wonder of wonders, it supports, even encourages, Mac OS X use according to Yahoo News. This is a big step forward for the US Government which usually restricts online support to Windows.

“The great news for Apple is that USPTO listened to its customers and integrated Mac OS X and Safari support into its new e-filing system,” Susan Prescott Apple’s vice president of Pro Markets, told Macworld. “Innovators around the world use Macs.”
