Is there any valid reason to resubmit an application that's had an unfavorable office action and abandoned several years earlier?

  • @Maca is it possible to have an OA without publishing? – DonQuiKong May 23 '18 at 7:47
  • @DonQuiKong Absolutely, I'd say it's common to have at least one kind of action before publication. – Maca May 23 '18 at 9:27

You like to interact with the patent office and its bureaucracy.
