"Maine punches far above its weight class--in many respects," argues David Kappos, who in 2013 stepped down as Director of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to become a Cravath partner. Mr. Kappos will speak on "Maine's Natural Advantages--Keys to Achieving a Vibrant Innovation Ecosystem," on April 21st from 4:45-5:30 p.m. in the University Events Room on the 7th floor of USM-Portland's Glickman Library. A short reception will follow with complimentary refreshments provided by L.L. Bean. The event is open to the public--all we ask is that you register here. Mr. Kappos' forthcoming Maine Policy Review article combines a brief history of innovation in Maine, a description of unique Maine's cultural traits, and an explanation of what Big Data means to Maine. He uses this perspective to claim that Maine could play a significant role in twenty-first century American innovation--if policy makers choose the right course. Both Republicans and Democrats applaud David Kappos' service as Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. During his tenure, among other major events, Mr. Kappos worked closely with leaders of both parties to craft the most sweeping change in America's patent system in more than 50 years, the Leahy-Smith America Invents Act. Please join us on April 21st for this special ten-year anniversary celebration of the L.L. Bean/Lee Surace Colloquium Series! We are fortunate to welcome an important leader of American innovation to the University of Southern Maine, and to hear why he believes Maine is strategically positioned to lead the next wave of American innovation.
