Advice and a bounty...

A couple quick links.

There is a bounty on Troll-Trackers identity and the PPAC just released it's 2007 report.

The PPAC is a specialized group established to review, advise and report on the “policies, goals, performance, budget, and user fees of the USPTO.” Their 2007 report digs deeply into the Office and current challenges, and has a great picture of a "complex" application (won't spoil it for you).

The TT drama is good for a bit of IP intrigue. There is an old-west wanted-sign feel to the saga, with a bit of symmetry/irony in that the "Patent Troll Tracker" is himself being tracked by one first labeled a patent troll.

All for now.
