Current PTO Secretary, and former IBM IP Counsel Dave Kappos reportedly told Senate aides “that S. 23 [Patent Reform Act of 2011] has broad support of inventors and small entity business.”
A bill that makes patents subject to more expensive, duplicative examination, raises the cost of patent ownership and forces a race to the patent office to get inventions on file is broadly supported by small entities and inventors? IBM pulls in $100 B a year …I’m not sure he is using the same definition of “small entity” as the rest of us.
