Patent reform and patent troll control was a tech and innovation priority this Congress. A lot of energy was spent in Washington and regionally to educate stakeholders and root out the trolls but, in the end, the trolls won. But there's every reason to stay engaged. Come hear success stories from industry leaders, next steps from national advocacy experts, and say howdy to Texas' own patent reform champion, Senator John Cornyn. 

Rackspace is committed to beating patent trolls in the courts and in Congress.  Come get the Rackspace perspective on Congress and hear about their recent victory against the most preposterous of trolls!

Rackspace knocks out patent troll that claimed monopoly on rotating smartphone displays.

Please aslo RSVP here.
