What is patent Fallopian tube?

I woke up this morning at 5:34 a.m. wide awake. That’s so not me. I typically need nine hours of sleep, and usually my husband and dog are luring me out of bed with a cup of coffee and a sloppy lick across my face. So, what’s wrong with me? I’m having flashbacks to my first, second and third pregnancies when I had Superwoman energy, bouncing out of bed at the crack of dawn ready to conquer the world. Could I be pregnant? Wouldn’t that be exciting? Maybe not in my case. There are certain symptoms I’m experiencing that are causing me concern.  My boobs are aching. I’m late with…

In the column above labeled “Totals, ” I added the number of unexamined patent application with the number of unexamined RCE filings. When you consider all of these unexamined filings the progress of the USPTO is more modest. There is not a 15.1% dip, but rather a 8.05% dip in unexamined patent filings over this interval. It seems rather clear that…

What is the value of knowledge sharing practices (R&D fairs, mentorship programs, communities of practice, etc.) and how do they contribute to breaking barriers to the flow of knowledge. Studying organizational learning practices allows us to understand how knowledge is transferred.

What is Intellectual Property Rights IPR?

“I’m convinced that management of intellectual property(IP) is how value can be added. Increasingly, companies that are good at managing IP will win, and those who aren’t will lose.”  This doomsday prediction was made by American businessman Richard Thoman when he was appointed as CEO of the $20 billion Xerox Corporation in 2.

What is Intellectual Property Right Law?

There has been some feminist analysis of copyright law, and this is obviously worth looking at closely. Our legal framework is assumed to work from and support a neutral (read: diverse) human base of access to resources, when in fact it does not.
