Jurisdiction

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is a governmental agency within the U.S. Department of Commerce. For ease of reference, this office will be referred to as "the office" in this article. The head is referred to as the commissioner. The office has the responsibility for reviewing patent applications and determining whether or not to grant or issue a patent thereon. It does not have jurisdiction to determine whether a patent is infringed. Moreover, except to the limited extent authorized by the patent reexamination procedure, it has no jurisdiction over issued patents and cannot make determinations of patent validity or invalidity.
