In yesterday's post, I stated that "the author [of "Who Owns You?" has] characterized himself as an intellectual property attorney." It's been years since I read the book, but I seem to clearly recall the author of the book holding himself out as an attorney with expertise in intellectual property. However, that author has contacted me and asked me to retract that statement, stating that he has never claimed to be an "intellectual property attorney." I don't have his book at hand, and perhaps I was mistaken in my recollection, if so I apologize.
I'd rather not delve into his book again, but a quick Google search will show that he claims to be an attorney, to have JD from a US law school, to have spent years researching in the area of intellectual property and technology, to lecture on the subject of intellectual property, and to have published more than one book with a focus on intellectual property. I will leave it to readers to judge for themselves whether these credentials might lead one to infer that he holds himself out as an attorney with some expertise in intellectual property.
