I’m Brian Schar, a patent attorney in Silicon Valley .  I’m a graduate of USC Gould School of Law.  (Go Trojans!)  I hope to post some occasional thoughts on US patent practice to this blog, with emphasis on PTAB opinions with a view toward how their reasoning may be used for the applicant’s benefit.

Of course, I take sole and full responsibility for all content on this blog that I created.  My opinions are purely that – my own opinions – and do not necessarily represent any opinions or positions of my employer.

Great to see a patent blog from an in-house attorney. I was also excited to see patent prosecution topics, which aren’t covered much. I mentioned your blog on my own patent prosecution blog.

Thanks! I like your blog – I’ve added you to my blogroll.
