New York, NY (February 27, 2013) - Today, Application Developers Alliance will be speaking at the second USPTO Software Patent Roundtable (watch the webcast here). At the first roundtable, President Jon Potter made recommendations to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) for improving the software patent system. With these roundtables, the PTO is launching a partnership with the software community with the goal of improving software patents.
