My scheduled #innochat on the topic of Patent office pendency rates around the world has changed. Robert L.Stoll, Commissioner for Patents with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, can now, no longer to join us. However, in his place, Deputy Commissioner Peggy Focarino is joining us.
Margaret A. (Peggy) Focarino is currently Deputy Commissioner for Patents for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Ms. Focarino was appointed to this position in September of 2009. Prior to that, from January 2005, she was Deputy Commissioner for Patent Operations.
I’m continuing to look for #innochat participants who want to represent different countries and provide some of the pendency rates and how different world patent offices approach patents. Let me know if you’d like to take part.
