Innovation Stimulus Needed

14 December 2009 Publication


Foley Partner Jon Dudas authored an article that appeared on Sphere on December 14, 2009 titled “Innovation Stimulus Needed.” Dudas discusses the need for an "innovation stimulus" to ensure financial incentives, legal protection and overall support for inventors as the economy recovers, stating that significant changes need to be made in the way the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USTPO) is financed. He adds that addressing the funding shortfall facing the USPTO and increasing patent discussion can make a powerful difference in supporting innovation.
