Windows 7 Virtual Box install tip

To install VirtualBox-4.1.2-73507 in Windows 7 I had to right-click the exe file and select 'Run as administrator'; without the admin mode the install was hanging windows explorer.

The Washington Declaration On Intellectual Property And The Public Interest... Which Politicians Will Ignore

http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20110909/02110315863/washington-declaration-intellectual-property-public-interest-which-politicians-will-ignore.shtml

The Washington Declaration On Intellectual Property And The Public
Interest... Which Politicians Will Ignore
from the so-full-of-good-ideas dept

The Global Congress on Intellectual Property and the Public Interest
recently brought together 180 experts from around the globe at a forum
concerning intellectual property issues from a public interest
perspective. Together, they recently released what they're calling:
The Washington Declaration on Intellectual Property and the Public
Interest. It's a fantastic document that basically lays out key
recommendations for how policy makers should view intellectual
property questions. It's such a fantastic list that you can almost
certainly guarantee that policy makers will ignore it. Among the
suggestions:

    * Valuing Openness and the Public Domain
    * Strengthening Limitations and Exceptions
    * Setting Public Interest Priorities for Patent Reform
    * Supporting Cultural Creativity
    * Checking Enforcement Excesses
    * Requiring Evidence-based Policy Making

Missing power supply and talk tonight on how to do a phone interview 4pm at CII/ Low 3051

Hi,

First, I want to say thanks for being a great audience yesterday.  I 
really enjoyed the class.  I think I left my dell laptop power supply in 
the classroom.  If anyone picked it up, please let me know.

Also, Katie Cronen from Kitware will be giving a talk tonight Sept 20th 
at 4pm at CII/ Low 3051.

Here is the description of the talk:

"I Can't See You! How to be Successful in a Phone Interview”

If you are looking for any type of job this year, most likely you will 
be asked to participate in a phone interview.  Join Katie Cronen from 
Kitware (Clifton Park, NY)  to learn tips and strategies to help you 
prepare for these important screening interviews.

-Bill

Patent Trolls and Biotechnology

"A news story in this week's Nature Journal talks about patent trolls attacking biotech companies. They cite a case in which the U.S. federal court of appeals upheld 'a patent that covered the idea of trying to link infant vaccination with later immune disorders.' The news story also references an interesting article from researchers at Boston University School of Law (Bessen, James E. et al, 2011, 'The Private and Social Costs of Patent Trolls'), in which they analyze the effect of litigation on the wealth of the defendants via their stock's value before and after litigation, and given that such loss minimally translates into an increment in the wealth of the inventor, they determine that patent litigation harms society and removes incentives for innovation."

"We have shown that defendants have lost over half a trillion dollars in wealth—over $83
billion per year during recent years—and this has not improved incentives to innovate. While the
lawsuits might increase incentives to acquire vague, over-reaching patents, they do not increase
incentives for real innovation. The defendants in these lawsuits are firms that already invest a lot
in innovation. Their losses make it more expensive for them to continue to do so and it also
makes them less willing to license new technologies from small inventors. Meanwhile,
independent inventors benefit very little from what the large companies lose."
