Vote for the Top Patent Blogs

As promised, we are moving forward to attempt to determine the Top Patent Blogs.  With the objective component making up Phase 1 of the Top Patent Blog selection process complete, it is now time to move forward into Phase 2, which is the voting phase.  Below are 50 patent blogs for you to choose from.  Question 1 asks which patent blog is your favorite, and question 2 asks which patent blogs you regularly read.  Only one selection is permitted for question 1, but multiple selections are permitted for question 2.  For each question 1 vote a total of 2 points will be awarded.  For each question 2 vote a total of 1 point will be awarded.  Each computer will be allowed only one opportunity to vote, so that we do not run into an American Idol situation where die hard fans can vote hundreds of times and skew results.

Voting will continue through the end of June 2009.  Once voting is complete I will tabulate the results, combine those results with phase 1 totals and announce the Top Patent Blogs, sometime at the beginning of July 2009.

Let the voting begin!

    I have contacted many IP service companies including Indian Patents. I would like to say that Indian patent is doing great job in this field. And the blog and site of Indian Patent is very useful for inventors.

    Beats me. Not really sure where the “Quixote” comes from. The only thing I can think of is at one point a while back I wrote an article titled Tilting at Windmills: Patent Troll Style. See:

    That was published on, which I don’t publish on any more and instead publish only on I do like the PatentFools name though.

    Another site referencing the vote: Patently-O

    “There are now many excellent Patent Law focused blogs. Gene “Quixote” Quinn is trying to rank them. Take his two-question survey:”

    Where does the nickname come from?
