To study how public policy can assist in maximizing the benefit of invention to society.
In line with its mission statement, Center for Patent Policy publishes original, compelling research about the social, political, and economic impact of new invention.
The Center for Patent Policy (CPP) is a research organization headquartered in Washington, D.C. The purpose of the Center for Patent Policy is to study: the pros and cons of proposed reforms to the United States Patent and Trademark Office, patent law and enforcement, and other regulatory issues which intersect the research, development, prosecution, and commercialization of new invention.
Studying the United States Patent and Trademark Office
CPP is dedicated to becoming the most respected source of information and research on the impact of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). CPP experts will focus on USPTO issues because of the agency’s exceptional impact on industry’s ability to innovate, adapt, and stay competitive in world markets.
Many experts contend that the United States Patent and Trademark Office is the cornerstone to the U.S. economy. The USPTO’s ability to prosecute and track new invention is one of the most significant dimensions of U.S. competitiveness around the world. CPP will publish detailed examinations of USPTO policy and proposed reform; and study their respective ability to meet the interests of all parties affected.
The Center for Patent Policy will study how public policy and invention impact one another here and abroad.
