What was the overall quality of the course (presentation, materials, and technical delivery)?
Rate the overall teaching effectiveness and presentation skills of faculty for the course.
How would you rate the value of the materials provided as part of the course?

Very good format, might consider this option against aftrbthe pandemic

As I have said on previous occasions, I'd like to see a course focused on patent preparation and prosecution. Several of the sessions have relevance. However, the speakers barely have enough time. If the course was focused on prep and pros, the speakers could spend more time on those topics.

Increasing Innovation and Transforming Industries through Open Source (Dec 2020)

Innovation is being democratized where users of products and services—both firms and individual consumers—are increasingly able to innovate for themselves. They’re building open source into the fabric of their R&D and development models, bringing speed to innovation that collaborating in open source enables. Users that innovate can develop exactly what they want, rather than relying on manufacturers to act as their agents. What is the place of patents and how are they affected by such innovation?

The Appointments Clause, Severability, and Forfeiture in Arthrex (Dec 2020)

The Federal Circuit’s decision in Arthrex, Inc. v. Smith & Nephew, Inc., 941 F.3d 1320 (2019), purported to save the power of the USPTO’s administrative patent judges to conduct inter partes review by abrogating for-cause removal protection for those judges. This presentation examines the Appointments Clause concerns that motivated that abrogation, whether severing the for-cause removal protection was a proper response, and whether the Appointments Clause challenge should have been considered forfeit as not raised before the USPTO.
