Patent Trolls, Innovation, and You

Innovation in the Time of Patent Trolls

Of all the tech topics being tossed around by policymakers and innovators alike, patent reform is one of the hottest. Patent trolls are threatening and suing startups at a growing pace, but an end seems to be in sight.

The House just passed a great troll-killing bill, and the White House is on board. The Patent Office is starting to fix itself up, and the Supreme Court is tackling some big questions this term.

What does all this mean for you as an engineer, an entrepreneur, a lawyer, and a user?

Come learn about today's patent problem over food, drink, and a short panel discussion with speakers from EFF, Stripe, and Ditto.

EFF and Engine will also announce the reform efforts so far—and how you can get involved.
