Wanted to post a quick update on the USPTO Patent Public Advisory Committee - they announced the three nominees yesterday.
I have heard of all of the nominees – but one stands out.
There are other academics who are more popular for their research – Mark Lemley at Stanford obviously - but in terms of putting out careful, original research that has resonated and impacted the practical development and management of IP, these researchers stand out. (Note: Professor Crouch is by far the most popular academic in IP, but not [yet] for his research, more for his comprehensive communications of that which is newsworthy to the industry.)
To see Professor Kieff, (and professor Hall as well) enjoy this video. And if I have egregiously left off anyone of note, please e-mail me or leave a comment. If I get enough interest/feedback – I'll make a top ten.
