EFF wants to hear from developers, engineers, and creators of all types. We're going to travel through Silicon Valley and beyond to talk with those who really feel the effects of today's flawed patent system: Internet companies. We want to have a conversation with you – find out how you are using patents, what you'd like to see in the patent system, where it is flawed and where it works. Some companies (like Twitter) are already hacking the patent system, and we want to hear what you think about that. We'll explain our proposals for repairing the system and hope to get your feedback. If you are interested in speaking with EFF about your experience with patents, please fill out the following information to let us know, and we'll get back to you about scheduling a meeting.
