On May 16th I had the opportunity to go to a luncheon with the Attorney General from Utah, Sean Reyes, and a few other panelists. The panel talked about the dangers of patent trolls but also cautioned that legislation could not be too expansive or many independent inventors would be hurt in the process.
After the panel concluded, I went around and asked for business cards to assist in writing the article. I talked to the representative for Overstock.com and told him of my appreciation that his company sponsored the kids spelling bee.
It was not until I was home that I looked at his card and realized that he was not a representative or a staff attorney -- he was the CEO Johnathan Johnson. I'm an idiot.
