USPTO to hold open source meeting

My buddy Steven M. Nipper tipped me off to a meeting being held Feb 16 by the USPTO to further work begun in December, to ensure that patent examiners have improved access to all available prior art relating to software code during the patent examination process.

Unforunately I won’t be able to make it to Virginia in time, but if you’re interested and in the area, it might be good to have some small-time representatives there to vouch for the little guy! They’re limiting attendence to 220, so sign up ASAP.
