Microsoft voices support for Obama administration’s call to strengthen US patent system

On Thursday, the Obama administration issued a call to the innovation community to help strengthen the patent system by providing the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office with the information, tools and resources it needs to perform its vital function, writes Horacio Gutierrez, Microsoft Legal & Corporate Affairs deputy general counsel and corporate vice president.

Microsoft “applauds and supports” these efforts, and is ready to partner with others to ensure the Patent and Trademark Office is “equipped to perform its delicate and increasingly technologically complex role,” he writes on the Microsoft on the Issues blog.
