WASHINGTON - The US Department of Commerce’s United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) announced in a press release that it will host its next Software Partnership Meeting on October 17, 2013, at the U.C. Berkeley School of Law in Berkeley, California. The public meeting will serve as an opportunity to bring stakeholders together to share ideas, experiences and insights and to provide a forum for an informal discussion on topics specific to the software community.

Senior USPTO officials will provide an overview of the executive actions related to patent assertion entities and US innovation initiatives called for in President Obama’s executive actions on June 4th. Other topics of discussion will include feedback from the previous Software Partnership roundtables held in Silicon Valley and New York; a summary of the written comments received in response to the January Federal Register notice announcing the Software Partnership; proposed next steps by the USPTO; and an interactive discussion session on strategies to improve claim clarity, such as the use of glossaries in patent applications.
