Appointment of Undersecretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property


The chief steward of America's patent system is the Undersecretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The Director "is the principal advisor to the President, through the Secretary of Commerce, and to the Administration on all intellectual property policy matters and the chief executive of the USPTO."1 Recently, Director Michelle Lee, who held that post since March 13, 2015, resigned.
