As discussed in my previous blog, “Former Judge Paul Michel Discusses Proposed Changes to US Patent System,” Judge Michel spoke, for the first time since his retirement, at the Global Intellectual Property Center of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on July 21, 2010, providing commentary on the current state of the nation’s patent system and how the system can be improved to bolster US economic growth. He will discuss similar topics on October 5.
