Should patents be more accessible to micro entities?

Posted on Tuesday June 19, 2012

As stated in our article on EasierAccessToPatentsForMicroEntities, the USPTO has planned to  reduce micro entities’ costs by 50% for “filing, searching, examining, issuing, appealing and maintaining patent application and patents”.

The USPTO is holding a 60 day commenting period to then decide whether they proceed with the plan.  Do you think this is enough incentive to get more small/micro entities to file for patents? Or should more be done?

I think it is still very expensive to file for a patent, especially for smal companies. The should deffinitely do more to make it cheaper.
