Patent Law Outline

The best patent law blogs act as a ready reference for case law. The Patent Prospector attempts this by covering CAFC cases with copious quotation, the entries categorized. Michael G. Sullivan's The Power of the Outline takes a different, rather extraordinary approach, beguiling in its simplicity. In doing so, Mr. Sullivan has produced an invaluable resource: a taxonomic synopsis of patent cases.

The form of Sullivan's Outline, pdf documents, practically begs for improvement. The presentation would have been more effective as a web site, and even better as a hyperlinked site to the cases themselves. This is meant constructively, and in no way tarnishes the utility of this prodigious effort.

Gary -- Thank you very much for those nice comments about my site!

With regard to the "form" of the site, hence the reason I introduce the site as the "First Edition" in the Welcome section. ;-) My goal was to get online with my work, etc., so I came up with this idea and now I've done that. Improvements will happen in the future, I'm sure. But with PDF's and all, I love everyday how the site works functionally (with a high speed connection, of course), and I hope others will too.

Thanks again.
