St. Louis, MO: Nationally known economist, patent expert, and author Pat Choate will headline an October 19 Washington briefing examining the breadth and depth of changes to the U.S. patent system and the effects of those changes on inventing. Mr. Choate worked with Phyllis Schlafly defending America’s unique, successful patent regime established by the Founders.

The luncheon briefing, titled “What Would Edison, Whitney, or Bell Think?,” will be held in Washington, D.C., in Room B-369 Rayburn House Office Building at noon on Wednesday, October 19, 2016. The event is open to congressional staff and the public, but those wishing to attend must RSVP to

A panel will discuss changes the U.S. patent system has undergone from judicial, legislative, and administrative actions over recent years. Speakers will examine the effects of those changes on American invention, inventors, and the nation’s economy.

In addition to Mr. Choate, other panelists are Laurie Self, vice president and counsel at Qualcomm where she specializes in intellectual property and related policy matters, and Andrew Baluch, a partner at the intellectual property law firm Strain PLLC where his practice involves patent portfolio management, IP litigation, and postgrant review proceedings before the U.S. Patent Office.

“Phyllis made clear that all Americans should have their voices heard on issues of patents and our patent system,” said Ed Martin, President of Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum Education & Legal Defense Fund. “We are proud to welcome Dr. Choate and to work with interested parties on these issues.”

Press are welcome at this briefing, but should sign in upon arrival. Please contact Ryan Hite at for more information.
