The USPTO recognizes that patent professionals are already very busy assisting paying clients with their intellectual property needs. That makes the commitment of the volunteers in this program all the more meaningful. The USPTO is grateful to all those who have dedicated their professional expertise to making the Patent Pro Bono Program a success.
