Patent Attorneys Give Back to Local Entrepreneurs and Artists
To foster creative entrepreneurship and innovation in New England, Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts/Arts & Business Council of Greater Boston, Inc., the United States Patent Office, and the Boston Patent Law Association have implemented a patent pro bono program that provides assistance to eligible businesses and inventors. Since the Program was founded in 2015, we have referred over forty cases and provided consultations to over eighty inventors and entrepreneurs interested in the pro bono program. This past year, the VLA matched famed bow maker Benoît Rolland, whose bows are played by the likes of Yo-Yo Ma and Anne-Sophie Mutter, with Katherine Miller, a volunteer attorney and associate in Cooley LLP’s patent counseling and prosecution group. Below, Kate and Benoît share what led them to the Patent Pro Bono Program, what their respective involvement has looked like, and how the Program has advanced their mutual goals.
