Replaced USPTO Update of December 17, 2007
This shipment contains a replacement disk for the combined CIPO + USPTO disk sent earlier this week. Nothing has changed in the CIPO Update.
This disk contains both CIPO and USPTO updates. You should install the USPTO Update dated December 20, 2007. You should install the CIPO Update dated December 18, 2007 only if you did not install it from the earlier disk. It does no harm to re-install it.
The USPTO Update from December 17, 2007 had a problem with the Registration pages, which prevented some registration pages and extended previews from being displayed or reported.
We identified this problem in our testing just after shipping the disks, and telephoned all customers affected by the problem, probably before they received the disks. Searches with the USPTO update disk were not affected by the problem?only the display and reporting of some hits were affected.
The CIPO Update was not affected by the problem.
