Photo Of Ed At B&H Yesterday

Here’s a quick shot I got of Ed yesterday at B&H pontificating on a particular lawyer point to what was a great audience. We stayed an extra half hour after the taping to answer questions. Sold all available copies of our book at the store. The video should be up in about two weeks and […]

Let Us Count The Ways….

Recently a federal judge in New York who happens to see Ed and his associate in his courtroom with some frequency, asked a pretty good question. Paraphrased the inquiry was, “How would you categorize the types of infringement claims and cases that have been coming into your office”? So Ed did an informal inventory of […]
