Index of 2010 Articles

Welcome to a new year, and a new Congress. As of January 5, 2011, the 112th Congress began. According to the U.S. Congress's web site, here's how Congressional schedules work: "A new Congress begins at noon January 3 of each odd-numbered year following a general election, unless it designates a different day by law. A Congress lasts for two years, with each year constituting a separate session." The 111th Congress ended on December 29, and according to the Congressional Record, the 112th Congress actually started on January 5, 2011.

Before we begin discussing new IP legislation, I thought it proper to close out 2010 and provide a list of articles that were published in this blog last year:
