--Intellectual property site of Jeff Kuester, a Net-hip intellectual property attorney who also has an engineering background. This prize-winning site is well-stocked with a wealth of authoritative links. I ran into Kuester while fighting a Net-hostile law that Georgia had passed. Kuester ( is working to bring Georgia pols up to speed on the Net and would like to expand his efforts at the national level. Send him a note if you're interested in helping out. A good cause! Note, too, the existence of a Congressional Internet Caucus. Educations of policymaker is the best protection against Net-stupid legislation--like the recent law out Georgia that could jeopardize linking on the Web if other jurisdictions repeated the same mistake. 1
