state of the state

Delaware Governor Ruth Ann Minner presented her State of the State address before the Delaware General Assembly today. Amongst the initiatives that she discussed was one that I found very interesting. She is calling for a "technology court to hear disputes in areas such as trademark, copyright and intellectual property law where changes in computerization are outpacing old laws." Under this plan, new procedures would be implemented in Delaware's Chancery Court to empower it "to hear disputes in the area of technology-related commerce." The full text of her address can be seen here. (Spanish version)
