America’s patent landscape has changed dramatically from the pro-IP environment of the 1980s ­to the dramatically weakened U.S. patent system of the last few recent years. As a result, the nature of what is invested into, and what innovations entrepreneurs believe are protected, is being impacted significantly. With the election looming, the debate is around if continuing such policies and attitudes would risk leaving the U.S. at a major disadvantage globally in the future. Innovation and Entrepreneurship in the U.S. could suffer while, in Asia and Europe, where the opposite trend has emerged over the last few years, the local economies would reap the benefits creating stronger IP to support innovators in these regions.

This event will be an informed and insightful discussion of the implications recent changes in the patent landscape in the U.S. are having on investment and innovation, and prescriptions for changes to keep the US at the forefront of global competitiveness for decades to come. Executives, investors and entrepreneurs are encouraged to attend.
