I have been away on an extended business trip, and I have now just returned. One of the stops on this trip was the headquarters of the Practising Law Institute (PLI) in New York City. As some of you may know, I am the editor and blogger for the PLI Patent Practice Center. On Monday and Tuesday of this week I was attending the Second Annual Patent Law Institute sponsored by PLI. I was attending the various programs and blogging away all day.
There was quite a good discussion of a lot of important and topical patent topics, including the Patent Office’s reform efforts, the pending patent legislation that is before Congress and discussion of the most important patent cases for 2007. It was an excellent program, the debate was lively, and some news was even made.
