Proposal: Unlocking Job Growth with Patent Acceleration ...
It seems pretty clear that under the direction of David Kappos the United States Patent and Trademark Office is pursuing an “all of the above” strategy to cutting into the backlog and ultimately reducing the pendency of patent applications.  It is easy to criticize any one of the initiatives that the USPTO is pursuing, but that would be to miss the forest for the trees.  The reality is that unless and until Congress steps up to the plate and does something, which seems extraordinarily unlikely, the Patent Office will be left to attempt to piecemeal together solutions.  So while no one solution can or will solve all ... market research, surveys and trends

The closest most of us ever come to pondering copyright, trademark and patent issues is when we're trying in vain to fast-forward through the FBI warning on a DVD. That's not for lack of trying on the part of groups like the Motion Picture Association of America and the Recording Industry Association of America, which have in the past sued individuals for file sharing and sponsored public information campaigns with the goal of educating American youths about music and movie "piracy" (that is, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
