The Patent Attorney in Popular Culture


The Patent Attorney in Popular Culture 

Robert M. Jarvis

Popular culture is filled with lawyers. Prosecutors and defenders are the most commonly seen, with civil litigators following closely behind. Patent attorneys, on the other hand, almost never appear. Still, with enough digging, such characters can be located. Discussed below are the ones I have been able to find. (See article for footnotes).

At the risk of stating the obvious, this article is not about patents or patent law. As such, I have ignored fictional works about either that do not also include a patent lawyer. Likewise, I have limited myself to mass entertainment forms of popular culture.
