U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Working to Improve System, Pinkos Says

In the face of the changing needs of patent applicants, increasing technological complexity, and the challenges inherent to an ever-expanding global economy, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) is examining ways to adapt and change for the better, said PTO deputy director Stephen Pinkos. In addition, Pinkos told an audience of Virginia law students last Thursday, the work of the PTO has never been more vital.
