Patent commissioner invites input from Small Times readers

Abstract:
In response to the April 6 article Cresanti leads nano commercialization roundtable, and in particular the article's report of small-tech patent application review frustrations, Small Times has received two letters, one from Under Secretary for Technology at the US Department of Commerce, Robert Cresanti and another from John Doll, Commissioner for Patents.

"It is not 'strong union forces,' but federal law, that makes it harder for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to recruit and retain patent examiners," says Doll, who then explains use of special law provisions to overcome the shortage of qualified examiners.
