Key Initiatives

  • The committee has been involved in planning plenary and committee sessions at stated meetings, electronic roundtables, the annual Partnering in Patents meeting held jointly with the USPTO, and electronic and computer USPTO group director lunches and telecons. 
  • The Committee also sponsored a meeting of AIPLA members with the FTC and DOJ on technical standards, and invited other Committee leaders to join us in working with the USPTO to acquire helpful patent statistics relating to patent quality.
  • The Committee also provides insight to the Amicus Committee, the Board of Directors, and recently the IRS on matters such as the patentability of software and patent reform for tax saving methodologies.
