Upcoming IGA Inventors Meeting, with Special Guest – Former USPTO Director Andrei Iancu – “What value do patents offer to independent inventors today?” – Saturday, June 19, 2021 at 1PM Pacific/4PM Eastern.

Posted in General Commentary by Jake Ward on June 12, 2021

Inventors, what questions do you have for past USPTO Director Andrei Iancu? We know you have at least a couple! 
If you are filing patent applications, we highly encourage you to attend our next meeting on Saturday June 19th at 1pm Pacific featuring Andrei as our speaker! Co-Founder Stephen Key and Founder Gene Quinn will be our moderators!
Personally, Stephen is looking forward to asking Andrei if there’s such a thing as a bad patent. We will also be asking him what the USPTO can do to strengthen the patent system! 
In celebration of this special event, you could win one of the following awesome prizes for attending: 
—    Help writing a better provisional patent application (PPA) via the program SmartIP.
—    Patentability search by a registered patent attorney at Ward Law Office LLC 
—    PPA review by patent agent Kevin Prince 
Everyone who attends will receive a link to download Stephen’s book “Sell Your Ideas With or Without a Patent” at no cost. 

Note: We have a max of 500 participants: Please show up early to ensure you are able to join in on the discussion. If our meeting maxes out, we apologize for the inconvenience.
