Yesterday’s post included a cumulative frequency chart that some readers found confusing. I have replaced that chart with one showing essentially the same material in more reader-friendly format.
These results come from a survey of Patently-O readers conducted August 23–25. In the survey, 626 responders self-identified as US patent attorneys and 116 self-identified as US patent agents. Each was then asked to enter their “Years of hands-on technical experience before focusing on patent law (if none, enter 0).” Responses ranged from 0–40 years. Fewer than 1% left the field blank.
