The Patents Matter Hangout

Congress is considering sweeping changes to the U.S. patent laws.

#PatentsMatter Hangout to discuss patent reform

The Innovation Alliance and Save the Inventor are hosting a Google Hangout on Wednesday, October 7, at 3PM EST to discuss pending patent legislation and the dangers they pose for American inventors. Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) and Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY) will participate in this bipartisan online hangout to discuss their concerns with patent legislation (S. 1137 and H.R. 9) currently under consideration in Congress. The members will take questions from online viewers via Twitter.

Gene Quinn, patent attorney and the founder of IP Watchdog, will moderate the following panel of patent experts:

  • The Honorable Chris Coons, U.S. Senator (D-Delaware)
  • The Honorable Thomas Massie, U.S. House Representative (R-Kentucky)
  • Louis Foreman, Inventor and founder of Edison Nation

The panel will discuss pending patent legislation that threatens to undermine the U.S. patent system and the inventors it was designed to protect.
