A friend has given me the following information which implies it is not
too late for you to send letters or faxes to the Patent Office for
their request for public comment.

    Last Friday I spoke with Jeff Kushan of the PTO.  He told me that since his
    office would spend at least two weeks summarizing the comments, letters
    received during this week would receive equal consideration with those
    received on time.

    So if you have not yet sent your letter, do it *NOW*.  Even a short letter
    will help.

Here is the snail address for sending responses:

     ADDRESSES: Submit written comments to E.R. Kazenske, Executive
    Assistant to the Commissioner, U.S. Patent and Trademark Office,
    Box 15, Washington, DC 20231.

Here, again, is the fax number:

    (703) 308-3718, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
