Information Forum on Pending U.S Patent Law Overhaul
The above-titled Forum is sponsored by the National Small Business Association and the Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia and Baltimore Sections of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The Forum will focus on the impact on patenting practice, patent protection, and on science and engineering jobs.
