"Commenting on the release, PUBPAT's Executive Director Dan Ravicher stated, "This is a huge contribution to the public knowledge about patents. No other tool, for example, allows one to locate the 30+ cases that construe the word 'coupled' in a matter of minutes, and for free, too. [See Sample Content, below] Dave's been a good friend of PUBPAT. I'm very happy that he's decided to release these documents to the public now and am confident that they will quickly become 'go-to' resources for anyone researching patent issues."
