Patent Office Chief Resigns – Praised For Reform?
from the more-of-the-same dept
theodp writes “USPTO Director James Rogan is leaving the Bush administration in January to complete work on his autobiography, “Rough Edges,” which will be published next summer, but can be preordered at Amazon.com today (be sure to turn on that patented 1-Click!). According to today’s USPTO press release, Rogan changed the culture of the agency by making quality, not the time it takes to get a patent, the hallmark of its work – judge for yourself!” Amazingly, the article about him leaving talks about how much he’s done to reform the patent system. Yet, every day we still seem to see ridiculous patents. If that’s what we call reform these days, I think we need something different.
