St. Louis, MO: Director Andrei Iancu of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office visited the Phyllis Schlafly Center in St. Louis, Missouri, on Monday. This location serves as the headquarters for the Phyllis Schlafly Archives and Library, including the records of her work to preserve intellectual property rights in America.
“Phyllis Schlafly understood how important patent and intellectual property laws were to our nation,” said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. “Director Iancu is doing great work to preserve the freedom of inventors and to streamline this cornerstone of the American entrepreneurial spirit. We are thankful for his recognition of Phyllis Schlafly’s legacy on patents and for his interest in our continuing work.
“Just this week, Andy Schlafly filed yet another amicus curiae ‘friend of the court’ brief to the Supreme Court involving patent law. We will continue to lead the fight to protect intellectual property. It is enshrined in our Constitution and should not be overlooked as a fundamental right in America!”
