The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has proposed a set of new rules that would drastically limit the public's ability to challenge bad patents. If these rules take effect, the problem of patent trolling will get much worse.
At EFF, we're taking action. At this free webinar, EFF Senior Policy Analyst Joe Mullin will join attorneys from Unified Patents and the Linux Foundation to talk about our plans for a widespread response to this wrongheaded USPTO proposal. We'll also talk about why it matters in particular to open source communities around the globe.
