Hello to ALL in the IEEE Foothill . especially our Consultants, Entrepreneurs, Technologists, and those interested in Patents:
Here is an opportunity to listen in via Webex (webcast) to a presentation from Silicon Valley, promoted by the IEEE Consultants Network of Silicon Valley.
The USPTO and Silicon Valley: Opportunities for Engineers and Inventors
John Cabeca , USPTO (US Patent and Trademark Office)
Monday, May 11, 2015 – 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Live presentation from the the Hewlett-Packard Co. – 3000 Hanover Auditorium , Palo Alto CA 94304
*** Requires pre-registration (free) via EVENTBRITE***
John Cabeca, Director of the Silicon Valley USPTO Satellite Office. John will discuss a number of topics of importance to inventors and innovators in our high tech hub, including the impact of the new Menlo Park Satellite Office (soon to move to San Jose), and the impact of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB)
The USPTO has experienced dramatic changes since passage of the America Invents Act (AIA) in 2011. This federal statute included a number of provisions and reforms, many of which have had a direct impact on the high tech world of Silicon Valley. One of the AIA provisions was the establishment of USPTO Satellite Offices, one of which is right here in Silicon Valley.
In this talk, John Cabeca will discuss a number of topics of importance to engineers, innovators, expert witnesses and other interested parties in our high tech hub as a result of the establishment of the new local office, including (1) how the USPTO will inteact with the local high tech community, (2) the greater accessibility of patent examiners, (3) the desire of the USPTO to be educated about important technologies by local innovators, and (4) opportunities for employment at the USPTO itself. You will be invited to submit questions in advance when you register for this free event.
