ND Texas Patent Pilot Program Survey

Please take 5 minutes to provide your feedback regarding the Patent Pilot Program in the Northern District of Texas.


We believe the Northern District of Texas will find the survey results very helpful and informative as to whether changes should be made to the program. The survey is completely anonymous, and we urge you to provide honest and thoughtful feedback.
