Meet Kathi Vidal, the new Director of the USPTO!

For the first half of our July 27th meeting, we’ll discuss all of the tools provided by the United States Patent & Trademark Office to help inventors protect their ownership of their ideas, including its pro bono programs. Then, for the second half of our meeting, we’ll be joined by Kathi Vidal, the new Director of the USPTO!

IGA will interview Director Vidal about her priorities and what inventors need to know about the patent system in 2022. We will explore the hottest topics in intellectual property right now, including whether it’s possible to balance the interests of different stakeholders, competing with China, strategies for making inventing and patenting more inclusive, the influence of Big Tech, searching for prior art, patent trolls, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, and more. 

Please join us!
