#USPTO Director Michelle Lee is well qualified to lead the Office, yet she would make it harder to obtain and enforce #patents. What to do now at a #patent system level and on a case-by-case basis.

On this date in 1790, U.S. Patent Act was signed into law by Geo. Washington. It is America's greatest invention! This week, U.S. #Patent 9,000,000 was granted. My collection of historic U.S. patents, all signed by #Presidents, dates from 1800, before numbering system began. See http://www.beemlaw.com/presidential-patents.

#Patent rejections are common, frustrating, and costly. How to prepare, prosecute and appeal applications that will build the value of your company's or your client's patent portfolio.
