Quote for the day

Friday, September 16th, 2022

“Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence.”

Abigail Adams (1780)

I used to enjoy attending what I still think of as the Kayton Courses; namely, three day intensive courses on topics of interest to patent practitioners. With the internet, these courses seem to have fallen by the wayside. I hope that some enterprising group of practitioners will pick up the mantle and revive this format of courses. Maybe a group like Strafford could use their platform to expand into this type of deep-dive offering.

Contact Your Congresspeople

Thursday, September 1st, 2022

I think my September 1st resolution will be to be more proactive in sharing my thoughts about IP laws with my Congresspeople. If you are of the same mindset, I’ve added a link to the front page of this site called “Contact Your Congresspeople.” You should be able to use it to quickly find contact information for your personal Congresspeople, as well as membership lists for pertinent IP committees in Congress.

Don’t be shy about reaching out to your Congresspeople and inviting them to relevant meetings of the IP community. I’m sure they would welcome the opportunity to visit with members of their constituencies.
