Co-Host Bob Ambrogi welcomes Professor Mark Webbink, Executive Director of the Center for Patent Innovations, a research and development arm of New York Law School’s Institute for Information Law & Property and Attorney Stephanie Scruggs , an expert in patent litigation from the firm of Hanify & King, to take an in-depth look at the innovative Peer-to-Patent system, that employs a crowdsourcing and open source model using experts in the patent process.
