The USPTO announced the fact that its Director Michelle Lee will step down. This comes as a slight surprise taking into account the rumors in the last months which suggested an opposite outcome.

 Wilbur Ross, the US secretary of commerce commented: “As the first woman in our country’s history to serve as director of the USPTO, Michelle has worked tirelessly to serve our stakeholders and the American public. We wish her well in her next endeavor”
