The Life of a Summerton Sharecropper

Posted on March 2, 2018 9:09 pm by Submitted by Reader

Jim McKnight, a Matoaca resident of six years who came to the area from South Carolina, began a quest years ago to map out his family tree. One of the biggest branches on that tree was his grandfather, Willie Holliday Sr., who died in 2004 at the age of 112, making him one of the oldest men in the country at the time. McKnight decided that the story of his grandfather warranted a book.

With the help of a genealogist, McKnight eventually completed the story, titled “My Story of a Sharecropper’s Life”.

The Patent and Trademark Office, the federal agency charged with securing certain intellectual property, has become an enemy of America’s inventors.
How is it that an office charged with protecting innovation is subverting it?
In 2011, Congress passed the America Invents Act. This law included a number of provisions harmful to IP rights.
Perhaps the worst was the establishment of new administrative procedures for challenging a patent’s validity. The abuse of this system has reached epidemic proportions. It’s time for Congress to restore integrity to the patent system.
The new administrative process for challenges to existing patents, known as inter … Read the rest
