New Director Kappos to Address IPO at Annual Meeting

On September 14, the new Director of the USPTO, David Kappos, will address the IP Owners Association at its annual meeting. Kappos is widely expected to address changes he intends to implement now that he has been confirmed in his new position. It will be interesting to see whether he chooses to comment on the likely position of the Government in the Bilski case. The Government's brief is due at the end of September.
