Innovators and Patent Trolls Go Head-to-Head

DC Developer Patent Summit

Innovators and patent trolls will go head to head at 1776 at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, September 17. Join entrepreneurs, patent experts, and policy makers to discuss the threat of patent trolls and the need for reform. Startups will share their stories of claim letters and lawsuits, followed by a panel of innovators focused on fixing the broken system and a patent troll that likes it just the way it is. An open Q&A and networking reception (open bar) will follow.
