PTO Director Nominated

July 19, 2009

President Obama nominated David Kappos for Director of the PTO, an IBM Vice President who was also its Assistant General Counsel, Intellectual Property Law. Bloggers have generally expressed approval, including Patently-O .

eWeek reports that Kappos supports the current patent reform proposal pending in congress, though he was providing testimony on behalf of IBM, not necessarily himself.
