TUESDAY, JULY 20: The Coalition Against Patent Abuse (CAPA) and the Public Interest Patent Law Institute Host a Panel Discussion on Current Patent Laws and Need for Reform

Join the Discussion to Learn More About How the U.S Public is a Vital Stakeholder in the U.S. Patent System.

WASHINGTON D.C. – As part of Patent Quality Week, the Public Interest Patent Law Institute and the Coalition Against Patent Abuse (CAPA) are hosting a conversation highlighting how patent law does – or at least should – account for the public’s interests on Tuesday, July 20 at 2:00 p.m. ET.  An expert panel will discuss various ways the law is structured to protect and promote these interests, and examine how the law sometimes still fails in that regard.

The event will feature a discussion moderated by CAPA Executive Director Matthew Lane and include the following panelists:

  • Tahir Amin, I-MAK
  • Alex Moss, Public Interest Patent Law Institute
  • Jef Pearlman, USC Gould School of Law
  • Kate Ruane, American Civil Liberties Union
