Patent Pro Bono Program Volunteer Recognition

These attorneys were just recognized for doing more than 50 hours of pro bono patent service!

“We want to recognize all patent practitioners who dedicate their professional expertise to make the Patent Pro Bono Program a success. Registered patent practitioners who volunteer their services are often engaged in very busy practices, which makes their pro bono contributions all the more meaningful.” – USPTO

Black People Made That! from Say It Loud

“Say It Loud is a new PBS Digital Studios series that celebrates Black history, culture, and context. Hosted by comedy writers Evelyn Ngugi and Azie Dungey.

In this episode, Black inventors throughout American history have contributed so much to our country’s innovation — all while navigating a difficult US patent system. They discuss the creative ways Black people have worked through their intellectual property and how it affects the United States as a whole today.” – Say It Loud
