Patent System at a Crossroad

At the 11th annual Sughrue Symposium on Intellectual Property Law and Policy, Judge Michel called for net improvement to the patent system. In his keynote address, Judge Michel describes the current situation as unstable and at a crossroad. Citing problems with the Intellectual Property Act of 2009 and problems at the Patent and Trademark Office, Judge Michel asked Symposium participants to get involved in the effort to improve the situation. Read more about the Intellectual Property Act on the Promote the Progress website.

For my own thoughts on how to improve the patent system, see The Genie in the Machine when it is published in a few days. . .
