Interview About Patents with Dan Ravicher
Saturday, January 10 2004 @ 01:43 AM EST

Many of you submitted some questions to ask Dan Ravicher, Executive Director of the Public Patent Foundation. I took the best of the bunch and added one of my own and his answers are now available [without a subscription] on LWN.net. As you may know, Dan is a programmer as well as a patent attorney, so he understood your questions on both levels. PubPat's mission statement is:
The Public Patent Foundation protects civil liberties and free markets from wrongly issued patents and unsound patent policy by providing those persons and businesses otherwise economically, politically, and socially deprived of access to the system governing patents with representation, advocacy and education.
Enjoy.

By the way, Dan is one of the instructors of the upcoming seminar on the GPL. I have been informed that there are special rates available and for attorneys CLE credits, as follows:
Financial Aid Policy:

Applicants with annual incomes of up to 15,000 are entitled to a 75% discount. People with incomes between $15,000 and $30,000 receive a 50% discount. Any member of the judiciary, academics or attorneys from non-profit organizations receive a 10% discount. Also, employees of companies that are FSF Corporate Patrons and all Associate Members receive a 20% discount. . . .

Also, Attorneys might want to know that we have just received approval from the New York CLE Board to offer NY Transitional CLE Credits for the seminars.

CLE Credits: Attorneys who successfully complete 'Detailed Study and Analysis of GPL and LGPL' on January 20, will be entitled to 7 New York Transitional CLE credits. Those who complete "GPL Compliance Case Studies and Legal Ethics in Free Software Licensing" on January 21, will be entitled to a total of 7.5 New York Transitional CLE credits, 3 in the area of Professional Practice and 4.5 toward the Ethics and Professionalism requirements.
