In the final two days of voting, Patently-O needs another 150 votes to win the American Bar Association's "Favorite" IP law blog. Gene & Renee Quinn's excellent IP Watchdog took the lead in the voting during the Holiday weekend with an offering of a free patent bar review course for votes in their favor. (Nobody reads Patently-O during the Holidays).
What can I offer?: Free books! I receive lots of interesting and excellent books in the mail. Two that I recently received from Oxford University Press (OUP) are the U.S. Patent Prosecutor's Desk Reference by Graham and Marlow and Patent Litigation in China by Douglas Clark. Each are listed at $225.
To vote, direct your browser to http://www.abajournal.com/blawg100, complete the 15-second registration form (anon registration OK); locate the IP Law Category; and Vote.
For Republicans, think of this as a warm-up for next week's primary season. For everyone else, this may be your most meaningful vote until November.
