Friday at the IP Mall
In May 2009, Photographer Jerry Greenberg of Seahawk Press, Miami Florida, donated to Franklin Pierce Law's IP Library his collection of legal briefs, exhibits, and other material that was created in his 12-year case: Greenberg v National Geographic.
IP Librarian embedded as co-instructor in patent clinic...dozens of patent students learning patent landscape skills taught at no other law school...collaborating with numerous public interest NGOs needing patent landscapes for projects to save lives around the globe...16 published reports distributed globally, including on the WIPO web. It just does not get much more innovative than that!
One of the most loved resouces in the IP Mall is the signficant collection of around 250 old Intellectual Property Treatises.
Today launches a newly renovated version of the IP Mall. The IP Mall is among the oldest open access IP content collections on the Web, coming online in the early 1990's at the same time as USPTO and WIPO. It has undergone numerous renovations over its twenty year history. The content collections grow every year. It is more difficult now than twenty years ago to find unique content as government and NGO sites now devote resources to their IP content collections online.

Bayh Dole Central was created several years ago I was approached by Visting Professor Karen Hersey who had been longtime IP Counsel for MIT. It was the 30th anniversay of the Bayh Dole Act, described below. She requested the IP Mall to create a site to commemorate the Act and the founding fathers. These men would be but a footnote in history at best.
