The complaint, filed against New York City-based Sony/ATV Music Publishing, was filed by McCartney to ensure a smooth process of reclaiming ownership over a good portion of the music catalog created as a member of The Beatles...

A Loss of Confidence in the Patent System

It is the one-year anniversary of a provisional patent application that I filed. Today is the last day that I can file my patent application and draw upon the priority filing date of my provisional patent application.
