Today, Gene Quinn of IP Watchdog says "no need to panic" and lists: Christmas Gifts for Patent Attorneys and Inventors.
I am not looking for a gift, but wish to add: David Hricik and Mercedes Meyer Patent Ethics: Prosecution (2016-2017). As stated in chapter 1: "This book comprehensively addresses ethical issues that face patent lawyers, patent agents, companies, and firms that prosecute and opine about patents. This edition also now includes a chapter devoted to post-disposition proceedings, including inter partes review under the AIA."
Not seeing anything like it on Amazon I ordered the Kindle version this week. I am still browsing this substantial book, but so far it appears very useful. I suggest review of the table of contents on Amazon to see what's covered. My mild criticism is this Kindle book is expensive, but still consider it money well spent given what's at stake. It's not the issues on "our ethics radar" that tend to cause problems -- it's the issues that aren't. This book should help spot ethics issues before they cause harm, which is "a gift that keeps on giving."
