Eighty Percent of our Clients are White Males.

(Originally published May 8, 2019)

Eighty percent of our clients are white males. That’s cool, but we’d like to see more women and BIPOC inventors represented. So would the patent office.

To that end, the United States Patent and Trademark Office is soliciting comments during open sessions to promote the SUCCESS Act of 2018.

Here’s their post:
“The SUCCESS Act of 2018 calls for the USPTO to conduct a study on the participation of women, minorities, and veterans in entrepreneurship and the patent system. Members of the public are invited to provide comments and to register to attend, at the links below, any of these three public hearings on the study:
• May 8 in Alexandria, Virginia [past] • May 16 in Detroit, Michigan
• June 3 in San Jose, California

See the Federal Register Notice published on April 26 for information on how to submit written comments.”
