Back in 2011, we took a look at various writing techniques that can be used to deter or discourage plagiarists.

Here's the abstract:Almost any discussion of self-defence under international law inevitably includes the debate over anticipatory self-defence.

A Wyoming man has won a Supreme Court case fighting efforts to route the Medicine Bow Rail Trail through his family’s property. On Monday the Supreme Court decided in favor of the landowner ruling abandoned rail road tracks are not under the federal government’s control. Last year we discussed in a blog the Supreme Court’s acceptance of the Marvin Brandt Revocable Trust v. United States for review. At issue was the disagreement over who retained the ownership of a railway after… [read post]

American Bell Telephone’s new… [read post]

“You know, whatever they said about Liverpool in the past, there’s one thing that is definitely in managed decline,” said HeadofChambers. “OldSmoothie?” said UpTights. “That’s a bit rich coming from the person with a face in such overly managed decline that she can’t even stretch to a smile,” he replied. “What is it?” asked TheCreep.

Congress is on the cusp of passing legislation that is said to be designed to control the so-called “patent troll.” Of course, as belatedly recognized by the person who came up with the moniker “troll” in 1993, Peter Detkin (former Assistant General Counsel at Intel at the time), the word “troll” is often in the eye of the beholder. Indeed nearly every litigator will tell you that term “troll” is commonly used against any opponent in a patent… [read post]

Sometimes, however, his ideas as to how things work are simply wrong, and Neil’s post last week: Servicer Advances: More Smoke and Mirrors, was a shining… [read post]

As Constitution Daily explores the debate over the power of the executive, here’s a look at the controversial president power moves that are usually mentioned in Imperial Presidency discussion. The Founders were deeply concerned about a President so powerful that he or she would rival the monarchs of Europe.
