This is the first time to file my application using USPTO's EFS-Web service. When I used the regular mail, the ADS document is always signed by hand, while here with EFS-Web I'm facing the following contradiction:
If I sign on it by hand (i.e., handwritten signature), then I have to scan it before uploading it. If I try to upload that scanned PDF document using EFS-Web, I received a warning message said: the file template is not compatible with ADS template!
Should I ignore that warning and go forward with the scanned ADS or should I stick with the original readable ADS and use S-Signature?
I'm thinking to sign on that readable PDF file using S-Signature, but I'm afraid that USPTO may contact me later and asking me for a one missing part >> which is about: "The ADS received on xxxxxx was not properly signed"
What are your experiences with this problem? Do you use handwritten or S-Signature when you use EFS-Web?
