For the past two years, The Legal Pulse has been privileged to feature the work of Beth Z. Shaw, who provided insightful commentary on patent law developments as our Featured Guest Expert – Patents. Beth recently left her law practice at Brake Hughes Bellerman LLP to take a position as an Administrative Patent Judge with the U. S. Patent and Trademark Office. Because of her new position, Beth has stepped down as our expert patent blogger. The Legal Pulse and its readers will certainly miss her commentaries, but we wish her the best as she moves into this new and exciting opportunity. Beth’s past commentaries are still available on The Legal Pulse on our Guest Contributor page.
