Senate Confirms Critical IP Appointments

Senate Confirms Critical IP Appointments

© uschools

Two years ago we commented on vacancies within the Administration related to intellectual property (IP) policies and protections. It has taken a while, but today, the U.S. Senate has confirmed appointments for two of the remaining positions. Michelle Lee now heads the USPTO and has public policy challenges ahead in addressing both patent quality and patent litigation reforms. We appreciate this step and look forward to working with Director Lee.
