The Blawg Reviews are not belated, just my post about them.  Last week’s Blawg Review #179 is up at Securing Innovationclick here to read it.  It is an ode to the ballpoint pen on its seventieth anniversary.  It was a transformative invention, dispersing the power of the pen much more broadly across societies.  I am a rollerball guy, but it is still a great review.  And as would be expected from an IP-focused blog, there is a heavy dose of IP.

This week’s Blawg Review #180 is up at Law Pundit — click here to read it.  Law Pundit focuses on German-American Day with exhaustive information about German-Americans and Oktoberfest.  After completing Review #179, Securing Innovation also plays a role in #180 because of its highlight of an article suggesting that the US nonpracticing entity patent litigation strategy has found its way to Germany and Europe generally — click here for Phillipa Maister’s IP Law & Business article discussing NPE’s in Europe.
