"The IP Mall is a SUPERB asset and I downloaded and used some of the
books on the Mall when preparing the 6th Edition of the Chartered
Institute of Patent Attorneys (CIPA) [professional and examining body
for patent attorneys in the UK] Guide and also when writing an inventive
step article. It is definitely a resource that others in the UK should
know about * anything with a first edition of Terrell that you can
access for free is really useful."

FreeLaw : An important rationale for the lack of copyright in judicial opinions is the belief that the public should have free access to the laws they are commanded to obey.
But lack of copyright is not the same thing as providing access. The Internet is beginning to solve the access problem, although difficulties remain...A number of companies and
organizations beside the well-known paid services of Westlaw and LEXIS/NEXIS have stepped in to fill the void...Franklin Pierce Law [Center] has an extensive
online library of material related to IP, called the IP Mall.
