"I started this blog because IP fascinates me. You can’t go down the street without seeing it everywhere. Patents are the engine of our increasingly technical and global economy. Trademarks are the common thread of our society. And who do you know that doesn’t want to write a book, a play or a song? The fact is IP is a great subject and many people want to and need to understand it better. There are plenty of fantastic blogs out there for those with experience in the field (see my links and feeds). But, for the simply curious and the uninitiated or those that just don’t want to scroll through a lot of heavy text to get the point there is Zing IP blog."
