Professor Dennis Crouch reports: USPTO Director Kappos will leave in January 2013. Many in the patent community will miss his leadership of the USPTO over the last three and half years.
Hopefully, USPTO Deputy Director Ms. Teresa Stanek Rea will continue his standard of excellence, which helped the USPTO tackle the application backlog, work with applicants to determine patentable subject matter, and adopt reasonable final rules implementing the America Invents Act.
Thanks for such a great job Director David Kappos!
