As we speak, the IPO is holding its annual meeting in Chicago. From the meeting:
- PTO Director Jon Dudas announced that he has not yet decided whether to implement changes to limit continuation practice.
- The IPO has created some information on patent reform. First, a one-page sheet outlining the various draft bills. Second, a five-page comparison chart. And third, a red-line version of S.3818 that was introduced by Senators Hatch and Leahy. Word on the street — nothing is expected to pass in 2006. . .
