This Thursday, March 22, The Heritage Foundation will be hosting Dr. Irwin Jacobs, the founder of QUALCOMM at its DC digs for a discussion entitled “Not Patently Obvious: An Innovator’s Perspective on Patent Reform. I’ve alway found Jacobs life story to be a fascinating one — starting out as an assistant professor of electrical engineering with some ideas on wireless signals, he ended up developing some of the key technologies behind the cell phone revolution, and founding one of America’s most sucessful firms. He is worried about the direction of patent reform in the Congress, however — fearing that proposed reforms will undercut the incentives for innovators in the future.
Please join us for what should be a fascinating discussion at 10 am Thursday. RSVP here.
