USPTO to be closed December 24
December 14, 2007

In a press release today, the USPTO announced it will be closed on December 24. December 25 is, of course, a federal holiday, meaning the USPTO will be closed for four consecutive days.

From the release:

Any action or fee due on those days (or the preceding Saturday (December 22, 2007) or Sunday (December 23, 2007)) will be considered as timely for the purposes of, e.g., 15 U.S.C. §§ 1051(b), 1058, 1059, 1062(b), 1063, 1064, 1126(d), or 35 U.S.C. §§ 119, 120, 133 and 151, if the action is taken, or the fee paid, on the next succeeding business day on which the USPTO is open, that is, Wednesday, December 26, 2007.

Good news for those practitioners who might need a few extra days around Christmas to take action in a case.
