This week I will be attending the NAPP annual meeting at the United States Patent and Trademark (USPTO ) headquarters in Alexandria, VA. The conference will keep me up to date on the latest developements in patent law and I will get to see old patent friends and make some new patent friends. The program agenda can be seen here.
We had an Inventors Association of Connecticut (IACT) meeting yesterday on Memorial day! Patent Agent Jonah Probell spone on Patent Valuation, how patents can be a barrior to competition, and licensings and cross-licensing of patents. Mr. Probell is a friend that I met through the National Association of Patent Practitioners. To find out about IACT’s next meeting, go here.
Thought I would post a photo from the National Association of Patent Practitioners conference I attended two weeks ago. It was great seeing old patent friends, and making new patent friends.

Hi Everyone. I just got back from a three day National Association of Patent Practitioners (NAPP) conference in Denver, CO. NAPP is the organization of choice for all patent professionals. NAPP provides networking, education, collegial exchange, benefits, and a collective voice in the larger IP community on patent law practice, so patent practitioners can flourish and achieve the highest levels of competence and professionalism in their practice. Patent practitioners include patent attorneys and patent agents. Attending the presentations and talking with fellow patent attorneys helps me stay on top of the latest developements in patent law. The NAPP conference agenda can be seen here.
I will be attending the annual meeting of NAPP for the next 3 days, July 19-21 via zoom. This annual meeting will include informational sessions on a wide variety of topics to keep me up to date on developments in patents law. Some topics to be discussed are: Developments in artificial intelligence/machine learning–practical take-aways for drafting and prosecution; Current Developments in Utility Patent Law; Current Developments in Design Patent Law (incl. Hague). I will also get to socialize with many of my colleagues who practice patent preparation and prosecution around the country and a few from outside the USA.
