From Janet Gongola, Patent Reform Coordinator: Date Change for Public Forum to Discuss First-Inventor-to-File, Micro Entity, and Patent Fee Final Rules

The USPTO is hosting a public forum on Friday, March 15th in the Madison Auditorium on the USPTO‚Äôs Alexandria campus from 1:00 to 4 PM Eastern Daylight Time to share information about its final rules for the first-inventor-to-file, micro entity, and patent fee final rules.  The forum will be webcast on the AIA micro-site.  Originally, the USPTO planned this forum to occur on Friday, March 8th from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time.  The agency is changing the date/time of the forum to enable webcast participation by West coast stakeholders.

Here is the event agenda along with instructions for viewing the webcast.
