i can certainly believe that IP lawyers
have special expertise re: "weaving" various
prior art into claims supporting/attacking
novelty. but what i found most interresting
about bountyQuest was its interjecting
of an ADVERSARIAL dynamic to the search.
the bounties offered were tiny compared
what "Internet Savvy Patent Attorneys" might
expect, but significant to technically
well-trained engineers/scientists who must
provide the details from which you weave!
