NEW YORK, Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cardozo Intellectual Property and Information Law Program at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law of Yeshiva University will host a program keynoted by Teresa Rea, Deputy Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Deputy Director of the United Stated Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), on Tuesday, October 4th, 2011. Rea will address "Re-Inventing IP Protections for a 21st Century Global Economy" at the program which begins at 2:30 PM in the Jacob Burns Moot Court Room at 55 5th Avenue, Suite 553.
Ms. Rea joined the USPTO in 2011 as Deputy Director. She is a renowned attorney in the field of intellectual property with more than 25 years of legal experience. Ms. Rea is a former president of the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA).
Cardozo School of Law Professor Justin Hughes says of the engagement: "We expect Ms. Rea will describe the key pieces of the patent reform bill that President Obama signed on Friday, September 16th – not just what went into the bill and how it will affect practice before the USPTO, but also some of the politics behind the patent reform process."
