Get your questions about patents and the patent system answered

Do you have questions, concerns, or fears about patents, patent reform, or being stuck in patent lawsuits and litigation?

The Application Developers Alliance is hosting a Developer Patent Summit in Chicago on June 20th focusing on the patent system and what it takes to get through it. This event is part of our summer-long Developer Patent Summit intended for developers to learn about patents and share stories of Lodsys letters, legal strategies and litigation costs, and their ideas about software patent reform. Each event will feature an expert presentation/overview, followed by a panel discussion between policymakers, app developers, attorneys, and other stakeholders.

The software patent system poses a significant challenge for developers. Patent trolls, product life cycles shorter than the patent process, and general uncertainty threatens to stifle innovation and growth in the app industry. The Application Developers Alliance is connecting experts with developers to discuss this critical issue. Join us along with industry leaders at this free event to enjoy a great conversation, food, beverages, and networking.
