Foley has become involved in a pro bono initiative led by the USPTO and the Federal Circuit Bar Association (FCBA). In the wake of the America Invents Act, the two organizations teamed up to establish the FCBA’s PTO Pro Bono Program to provide greater access to IP counsel for financially under-resourced independent inventors and small businesses. The initiative will ultimately also benefit the USPTO, as examiners will receive better-quality applications that they can examine more efficiently and effectively.
