and Patenting in the U.S."
Implications for the future of US Competitiveness
6:00pm start (5:15pm+ registration and networking and food served) to 8:30pm
Venue: HP World Headquarters, 3000 Hanover Street, Palo Alto, CA
Open to the public, but seating is limited. (Charge: $40/food and refreshments provided)
America’s patent landscape has changed dramatically from the pro-IP environment of the 1980s – to the dramatically weakened U.S. patent system of the last few recent years. As a result, the nature of what is invested into, and what innovations entrepreneurs believe are protected, is being impacted significantly. With the election
looming, the spirited debate concerns if continuing such policies and attitudes would risk leaving the U.S. at a major disadvantage globally in the future. Innovation and Entrepreneurship in the U.S. could suffer while, in Asia and Europe, where the opposite trend has emerged over the last few years, the local economies would reap the benefits
creating stronger IP to support innovators in these regions.
This event will be an informed and insightful discussion of the implications recent changes in the patent landscape in the U.S. are having on investment and innovation, and prescriptions for changes to keep the US at the forefront of global competitiveness for decades to come. Executives, investors and entrepreneurs are encouraged to attend.
