JEB Stuart travels to India

In a March 2007 post, Still plagiarizing after all these years?, IPBiz noted

The onlypunjab web site still has the article:

Edison as a Patent Troll, or Where is California Going in Stem Cell Research? -
By: Annie Kaszina

in which "Annie Kaszina" had substituted her name for LBE in an article which had appeared on ezines in June 2006. Unfortunately for "Annie," the bio of LBE was left at the bottom of the article, and as of May 12, 2007, the bio still is within the plagiarized article on theonlypunjab site:

Lawrence B. Ebert is a registered patent attorney located in central New Jersey. He holds a Ph.D. from Stanford, a J.D. from the University of Chicago, maintains a blog at, and is the author of LESSONS TO BE LEARNED FROM THE HWANG MATTER: ANALYZING INNOVATION THE RIGHT WAY, published in the Journal of the Patent & Trademark Office Society [88 JPTOS 239 (March 2006)]. The above material is based on a submission to Intellectual Property Today [IPT] which was supposed to have been published in April 2006, but which was not published. Most endnotes of the IPT submission have not been reproduced here. The contents of Endnote 18 of the IPT submission did appear within comments to the USPTO concerning proposed rulemaking about continuing patent applications. Ezine draft submitted June 16, 2006.

IPBiz is certain that the Indians appreciate LBE's references to Tom Carhart's Lost Triumph, concerning Gettysburg, Custer, and Stuart, and an alternative view of Lee's performance. Recall that in Kantor's "What if the South Had Won the Civil War," (which advanced Lee's Gettysburg performance beyond that allowed by Carhart), JEB Stuart's son, REL Stuart does a bit of traveling. [With the Civil War ending in 1863 in this alternative history, JEB Stuart does not die at Yellow Tavern, but lives on, unlike Grant and Sherman, who die in the western theater. One can only speculate about Custer's fate in this alternative world, but, given Stuart's July 2, 1863 invigoration by Kantor, one suspects Custer did not fare well in 1863, much less in 1876.]

Other sites are craftier about the bio. The splitheaven website's version of Edison as a Patent Troll, or Where is California Going in Stem Cell Research? deleted the bio.
