A Special Thank You to Our Guest Contributors!

As you may have seen, IPWatchdog.com has been named to the ABA Blawg 100, which recognizes the top 100 blogs on the Internet written by lawyers for lawyers.  This marks the third year in a row we have been honored by the American Bar Association Journal as a top 100 blog.

Now the voting begins. Last year we were voted the top IP Law blog and greatly appreciate the support we received.  Once again this year we are in the same category — IP Law — as is Professor Dennis Crouch’s widely popular PatentlyO blog.  If you are inclined to vote for us we would once again greatly appreciate your support.

Over the years IPWatchdog.com has continued to try and add additional perspectives from a wide variety of guest contributors, ranging from well respected practicing attorneys and agents to high profile academics to inventors and pro-patent lobbyists. It is hard to imagine providing such depth of analysis on such an array of topics without having truly wonderful guest authors.  So we take this moment to say a very special thank you and to shine the spotlight on them. Each deserve to share in any recognition of IPWatchdog.com.  While I am loathe to single any guests out I would be remiss if I didn’t separately thank both Beth Hutchens (10 contributions) and Eric Guttag (9 contributions)!

    Tax issues are way over my head, too. Marvin Petry who I’ve known for many years (now with Stites & Harbison) is only one I know who writes about tax consequences in the patent sector. In fact, I’m pretty sure Marv has written a book on the subject.

    Thanks for the comment.

    For quite while I have been trying to find someone who could write tax articles that would be relevant to our readership. Tax issues are way over my head, for the most part. I can write about what policy/law changes would mean for small business, but all high level stuff.

    I will reach out to you via e-mail.
