This is one of many recent smart PR moves by Kappos. There is little question that his decisions have gone a long way toward improving the public image of the USPTO. Whether or not they will significantly, and positively, affect the practice of U.S. patent law remains to be seen. Nonetheless, I appreciate the new USPTO Director’s assiduous efforts.
