USPTO Record Breaking Years

Washington, D.C. – Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) (WWW.USPTO.GOV) Jon Dudas testified February 27 in an oversight hearing held by the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Courts, the Internet and Intellectual Property. Dudas’ testimony highlighted the USPTO’s record-breaking performance for the last two fiscal years, and addressed current and future challenges for the agency.
“Both fiscal years 2006 and 2007 were record-breaking years for the USPTO. We have met or broken records for production, quality, hiring, teleworking, electronic processing and more,” said Under Secretary Dudas. “We intend to build on these successes in 2008 with the dedication of our high-achieving, performance-focused employees, and the support of the Administration and Congress who have provided USPTO full access to the fees we collect.”
