As a patent attorney and an iPhone addict, I spent yesterday morning reading the latest decision from the Federal Circuit in the patent war raging between Apple and Samsung.

Because I am a tech geek as well as a patent geek, I bookmarked the opinion in Adobe Acrobat as I read. This bookmarking is something we use in e-briefs (or ebriefs if you prefer) to let the reader jump to sections of a long document. I started this bookmarking for my own use so that I could later refer back to the opinion. However, as I went, it occurred to me that this bookmarked opinion may be helpful to others. So, I added a hyperlinked table of contents and some back buttons (like we use in e-briefs), and here it is: the Apple III opinion – e-brief style.

Below, I provide a short video explaining how to bookmark PDFs yourself if you are so inclined, as well as some links to the Patently O blog posts analyzing the decision. (more…)
