GENERAL REVISION OF THE PATENT LAWS

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1968

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
SUBCOMMITTEE No. 3 OF THE
COMMITTEE ON THE JUDICIARY,

Washington, D.C. The subcommittee met at 10 a.m., pursuant to notice, in room 2226, Rayburn House Office Building, Hon. Robert W. Kastenmeier presiding.

Present: Representatives Kastenmeier, Tenzer, Poff, Hutchinson, and Roth.

Staff member present: Herbert Fuchs, counsel.
Mr. KASTENMEIER. The meeting will come to order.

The Patent Subcommittee has reconvened this morning to resume its hearings on pending legislation for the general revision of the U.S. patent laws. In the first session of the present Congress, the subcommittee held 10 days of hearings on H.R. 5924, titled "The Patent Reform Act of 1967," proposed by the administration, and on related patent law revision measures.

The subcommittee suspended its hearings, pending the activities of the patent bar, and specifically the American Bar Association, designed to bring before Congress their own proposals for revision legislation.

Subsequently, our subcommittee colleague, the gentleman from Virginia, Mr. Poff, introduced H.R. 13951, which, it is understood, reflects the views of the American Bar Association. Without objection, H.R. 13951 will be made a part of the record at this point. (H.R. 13951 follows:)

(H.R. 13951, 90th Cong., first sess.) A BILL For the promotion of the progress of the useful arts by the general revision of
