Patent reform, well no

Digit reports that close to 300 people, including tech executives, advocacy groups and government officials were expected to attend the Tech Policy Summit this week in San Jose, California.

Patent reforms, trolls and the PTO backlog graced the menu. Adding to the indigestion was Deborah Platt Majoras, chairman of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, who endorses the idea of post-patent review. (Any Donkey wonders if Ms. Majoras wants to add the post-patent review to her ever-expanding portfolio.)

The Patent Prospector repeats the gossip that USPTO Under Secretary Jon Dudas recently assured tech leaders that proposed continuation limits are as "dead as a doornail." Add Treowth to the gossip chain.
