This month, we're meeting at Projective Space in the Lower East Side to look at the issue of non-practicing entities (NPEs), or entities that enforce patent rights to inventions they are not practicing themselves. We'll dig into the architecture of the current patent system and how it encourages this kind of behavior. Then we'll look at who comprises these entities, explore the problems they may create, and discuss what kinds of patents they’re using. Finally, we’ll look at practical solutions that tackle the problems we've raised, and determine for ourselves whether our current system and the solutions we propose "promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts."
As usual, our first hour will be a panel discussion with a host of amazing experts in the field. Our second hour will be a "mini-hackathon" followed by quick demo's and networking. Beer will be served at this event.
