At the latest IP Counsels Committee Conference this past March, Q. Todd Dickinson, Executive Director of the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA), and E. Anthony Figg of Rothwell, Figg, Ernst & Manbeck, P.C., spoke to BIO’s member companies, universities, and law firm members about patent reform legislation.
In the three weeks since the panel session took place, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) has managed to get his bill voted out of Committee and placed on the Senate Legislative Calendar. However, as the patent reform debate readies for a move to the House, it is worth reviewing some of issues that were discussed at the IPCC panel session.
Why is it worth reviewing another one of BIO’s substantive conversations on the intellectual property system? This author knows, but you should visit Patent Docs, or call your Congressional representatives, for the details.
