USPTO Bans Wikipedia
Business Week (9/4/2006 Issue 3999, p12) has reported that the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) will no longer accept Wikipedia entries as "accepted sources of information". I am wondering why the practice was allowed in the first place.
The Patent Librarian conducted his own analysis to see how much the practice was utilized.
The Case community can find various sources of the Business Week article from the E-Journal Portal.
