Patentable Subject Matter in Boston:
- On March 16, 2007, I'll be speaking at Harvard Law School as part of the Journal of Law & Technology's 20th Anniversary Symposium titled: "Progress of Science and Useful Arts" My panel will be discussing "The Outer Limits of Patentable Subject Matter." Registration is FREE.
LexisNexis and Amazon
- If you are not satisfied reading this free version of Patently-O, you can now get the same content through LexisNexis for a fee. Lexis has begun archiving content from a select group of "web blogs" including Patently-O. Unfortunately, they will not be including some of our best content -- reader comments.
- On the other hand, if you are satisfied with this free version of Patently-O, you should think about using the site as a portal for purchasing your books and other junk from Amazon. If you click on an Amazon link from my site, I get about 6% for any item that add to your cart during that session. (I only need about $2.6 million in sales to reach to the income level of a first-year associate).
- In response to a comment, I'll mention that the books linked through Amazon are all books that I have read or at least browsed through and found redeeming value. In some cases, like Alan Durham's book and Patent-it-Yourself, I have the earlier edition. I have given Patent-it-Yourself to a number of clients, including corporate counsel and inventors. For the most part, they followed some of the advice in the book, but none of them decided to 'patent it themselves.'
