Quotes

...July 29, 2014, Emily Sheketoff, Executive Director of the American Library Association ’s Washington Office, stated on behalf of the A L A , "Libraries and librarians are and have been on the frontlines of the fight to preserve the Fourth Amendment and foster government transparency in a post 9/11 world. The new USA Freedom Act introduced today by Sen. Leahy and others, if passed, would finally allow judges to assess all “gag orders” that accompany every so-called National Security Letter, empower new Special Advocates to meaningfully champion civil liberties in FISA Court proceedings upon judicial request and, once and for all, end the dragnet collection of US citizens’ telephone records under the Patriot Act.”"
...For example, Docket Service can answer: "What is the success rate for motions to stay pending reexamination in Texas?", "What is the litigation history for Patent No. 7,933,859 ", and "Which judges have excluded expert testimony based on the entire market value rule?" Docket Navigator's litigation support tool can help patent owners manage an IP portfolio, develop a patent application, fashion a go-to-market strategy, and develop a trial strategy."
Cheetah has a faceted search interface and arranges content in a “topical” fashion "designed for digital consumption,” as opposed to being "publication-centric," said Sauer."
"I am honored to receive the 2014 AALL Distinguished Lectureship Award, both because of the opportunity to address my professional colleagues at the annual meeting and because it allows me to join the previous recipients, all of whom are friends and colleagues for whom I have the highest respect,” Danner said."
