The Web has made it easy to hear from many smart people. Staying with this thought, let me point to some interviews of leaders in the patent community this week:
1. IBM was announced as the leader in US patent grants in 2011. No surprise here but still perfect timing for Gene Quinn's interview of IBM's Chief Patent Counsel Manny Schecter.
2. In Gene Quinn's second interview of PTO Director Kappos, Director Kappos talks about the never-ending (impossible) job of getting examiners to uniformly apply US patent law, PTO rules, and policies to the various inventions they review.
3. The Reexamination Center interviews patent attorney Dr. Nancy Linck on post-grant review, inter partes review, and ex parte reexamination in the past and under the America Invents Act.
