I was honored and privileged to be a roundtable panel member for Cornell’s Intellectual Property and Ethics Club (CIPEC) IPAthon event Saturday March 26, 2022. It was a wonderful day of sharing ideas and perspectives on Intellectual Property. The first roundtable panel looking at “local” issues in entrepreneurship and opportunities in technology and business. I shared the second roundtable panel with Professor Lillien Ellis and Aleks Nikolic from Klausner Cook, where we discussed IP issues facing inventors especially independent inventors and those in start-ups, timing for considering IP issues in technology development; responsibility for education with respect to IP; and available opportunities for easier accessibility to IP services. The group of students who put this event together are clearly those professionals who we will see driving IP policy, development, and protection in the next decades. As a 40-year IP professional, I now know IO can rest easily as the IP future will be in impressive hands. Congratulations to all. # #intellectualproperty #students #technology #entrepreneurship #event #ethics

It was such a pleasure to sit on a panel with IP attorneys and share insights on the psychology of idea protection and theft in entrepreneurship. We had a fascinating discussion about intellectual property at the intersection of psychology, policy, and law. Many rounds of applause to the Cornell University students who organized this event! 🙌

Awesome to see my home town continuing to find ways to improve. And perhaps Kelly Sq driving will get easier?!?

Awesome and inspiring to athletes--there is not a real long career, if you make it at all in the pros. Kudos to Mr. Springs. He saw something and went after it. Great kitchen table scene--I wish I could have seen that go down. I hope Mr. Springs IP team got him robust and broad coverage. Wondering if Dorel and Safety 1st have had regrets on limiting technology to car seats for infants, but it benefited Mr. Springs. Hopefully, technology will be able to protect footballers, soccer players, hockey payers, bike riders, hitters in baseball/softball, and any other contact sport where head injuries could occur. And I hope Mr. Springs does not restrict his passion to just technology applications to sports-it is clear he has an unbridled innovative spirit.

As an Examiner, working with inventors of differing style, initiative, strategies, and desired outcomes, gave me expertise now that I am an attorney for pursuing my client's requests and interests. Good attorneys will never be reluctant to tackle lengthy applications, complicated technologies, and I welcome any challenge. The practice I had as a Primary Examiner (as do other former Primary Examiners) at the USPTO with various inventors and their counsel gave me a unique skill set to understand and work with all people in the patent process.
The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) gets a victory in the Eastern District of Virginia against a prolific inventor who argued that his "extraordinarily lengthy" patent applications are not being processed quickly enough.
