As a Sponsor of the Meeting, General Patent Corporation Is Offering Discounted Registration to Clients and Colleagues

Suffern, N.Y., March 17, 2014 − The Licensing Executives Society (LES) 2014 Mid-Year Meeting in New York will include a workshop that addresses patent assertion entities and patent reform. "Risk-Benefit Issues Associated with Proposal to Address Patent Assertion Entities" will feature General Patent Corporation (GPC) CEO Alex Poltorak and Frank Rusco of the Government Accountability Office (GAO), author of the recent GAO report on NPEs (Non-Practicing Entities).

"Risk-Benefit Issues Associated with Proposal to Address Patent Assertion Entities" is one of 30 workshops and roundtable discussions that will be presented during the first Mid-Year Meeting of the LES to be held at the Crowne Plaza Times Square in Manhattan on March 25-27. As a sponsor of this first-time Mid-Year LES Meeting, General Patent can offer discounted registration to its colleagues and clients.

"The U.S. patent system needs reform, but the current proposals will hurt innovation," asserts Alex Poltorak, founder of General Patent Corporation. "Maintaining America's position as the leading global economy requires that the U.S. have a patent system that rewards innovation," he adds.
