Patent Office to Enter Web 2.0

Below is a link to an article that appeared in the Washington Post on March 5, 2007 about:

"The Patent and Trademark Office is starting a pilot project that will not only post patent applications on the Web and invite comments but also use a community rating system designed to push the most respected comments to the top of the file, for serious consideration by the agency's examiners. A first for the federal government, the system resembles the one used by Wikipedia, the popular user-created online encyclopedia."
