Professor Bob Jarvis (Nova Southeastern) is finishing up a law review article discussing the depiction of patent lawyers in popular culture (TV shows, movies, novels, comic strips, etc.). Although he’s already found dozens of such characters, he’d like to hear from any Patently-O readers who know of such characters (he’s trying to make his piece as thorough as possible).
Bob can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. His deadline is Friday, June 10.
I’ll highlight the Javris article once it is out. Meanwhile, you may want to check-out the article by Professor Ed Lee (Kent-IIT) titled Patent Trolls: Moral Panics, Motions in Limine, and Patent Reform. The article “provides the first empirical study of the use of the term “patent troll” by U.S. media.”
