USPTO people to meet with Patentcenter listserv people

I find it very encouraging to be able to report that a face-to-face meeting has been arranged between USPTO people and people from the Patentcenter listserv.

This will happen on Wednesday, October 18, 2023, at room 10D79 of the Madison Building (600 Dulany Street, Alexandria, VA 22314).  The meeting is scheduled for 3:30 PM to 5PM.

Attending on the USPTO side will be:

    • Vaishali Udupa (Commissioner for Patents)
    • Richard Seidel (Deputy Commissioner for Patents)
    • Greg Vidovich (Assistant Commissioner for Patents)
    • Terrel Morris (Director, Office of Information Technology for Patents)
    • Kimberly Williams (OITP)
    • Patricia Mallari (Special Advisor for Patents)
    • Steven Griffin (Senior Advisor at USPTO)

Attending on behalf of the Patentcenter listserv will be:

    • Carl Oppedahl
    • Richard Schafer
    • Suzannah Sundby

What prompted this meeting are the concerns that were raised in the letter dated September 29, 2023 from One Hundred Seventy-Eight Members of the Patent Center Listserv to USPTO Director Kathi Vidal.

  1. Congratulations to Carl, Richard, Suzannah and everyone that provided input and editorial efforts to the letter that resulted in this meeting. I’m encouraged by the number of PTO attendees. Maybe this indicates a real concern and interest in correcting the numerous trouble items that have been identified.
