It also includes a new Q&A section excerpted from the author's regularly updated "Dear Rich" blog."
"A good basic general text on the subject of intellectual property. As manufacturing companies in general, especially small to medium size companies, in the U.S., tend to be sloppy about protecting their intellectual property, this should be must reading for whoever is the corporate head bean counter." George H. Morgan, Patent Agent of Morgan and Associates -

The sounds of the river had awoken me. The smell of death lingered all around me. What happend? Was I dead? I groaned and a got up steadily on my paws. They felt like someone had thrown me in a bath full of honey. As I looked down, my paws were covered in drying, scarlet blood. There was a sharp pain in my head. I managed to take a step and take a glimpse around me. Nearby the river was a Thunder Path. Adult TwoLegs gathered around what looked like a dead monster. Its eyes were all over the place and one of the TwoLegs it carried was sprawled out and covered in blood. This is terrible! I thought, for once feeling sorrowful about a TwoLeg. I've always felt sorry for anyone who faces death, I'd even feel sorry If my enemy was screaming and dying from a mortal wound at my feet. I glanced at the devastation. TwoLegs wearing blue fur on there hats and carried some kind of weapon with them surrounded the scence. I slowly stalked towards the edge of the path, and looked up at them with curiousity in my brown eyes. One tall TwoLeg noticed me, and barked something that I could partially understand. "Cat." it had said. "That cat injured." One different looking TwoLeg wearing strange, white fur, and had something that looked like eyes on top of its head slowly approached me. "Cat." it purred. "I take care of cat." The TwoLeg scooped up me with its long, peach colored paws. "Vet." it yowled. "Take cat to vet." Words danced around in my head. Vet? What could that possibly be? I mused to myself. The TwoLeg began walking me over to a white, monster. I hissed loudly as it put me into a small box. It then opened up the monsters belly and got in, along with me in it. "No! Don't take me to this 'vet place!" I yowled. It just looked at me and grinned a toothy grin. "Silly." it purred, amused. Suddenly there was a loud rumble, and then it began running. It threw me to the back of the box, and there was a sick feeling in my stomach. I looked out the holes in the box and watched evergreen trees zoom past. With a sigh, I collasped and whimpered, wondering where the TwoLeg will take me.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
