Pro Bono Design Patent Application!

I am happy to announce that I recently found a pro bono opportunity to help someone apply for a design patent application.   I am in the review stage of the process, but it feels great to give back to the community.  Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts is the organization I am a part of that gives me pro bono opportunities with respect to patents, trademarks and copyrights.  Their website is here if you are interested in volunteering, or if you are seeking free or low fee legal services.
