Director Lee Staying on Under Trump?

Posted Thursday, January 19, 2017 by Jim Ruttler

Breaking news is being reported by IPWatchdog and PatentlyO that current Patent Office Director Michelle Lee will be staying on under President Trump. This is quite a surprise by many in the patent community who expected Trump to choose another person to fill the job of running the Patent Office.

There is no information yet as to how long Lee may stay on as it may be a temporary transition until Trump can find another candidate.

My hope and belief is that Director Lee will adopt a more conservative and stronger view of patents under Trump.

More information to come as soon as it is available.
