"what about your current profession is driving you away?"
Okay, so the real answer is a long one... but too boring to go into detail. I love science and research and all that jazz... but after half a decade or so at it I'm starting to realize the lifestyle isn't exactly bang-on for me. I've had some experience w/IP law (as an inventor) and the field really interests me. I'm especially curious about international IP issues and how IP is defined differently in different markets. It seems to me that there will be a lot of action in international IP in the near future and I would like to be in on that.
Between us, I think that the days of our"first-to-invent" system are numbered. More later... have to eat a late dinner.
I'm sure you're all on the edge of your seats...
BTW: I second bleed's post w/regard to hoping we all meet each other at GULC... although, frankly, Ithaca's a pretty great place. I nearly went to grad school there.
