CRS Reports Available from Franklin Pierce Law Center

The Franklin Pierce Law Center IP Mall now offers the full text of intellectual property, cyberlaw, and electronic commerce publications of the Congressional Research Service (CRS), the 741-person, $68 million-per-year "think tank" that works exclusively for Members and committees of the United States Congress. CRS is a department of the Library of Congress works exclusively as a nonpartisan analytical, research, and reference arm for Congress. According to the FPLC,

The availability of CRS Reports has become controversial in recent sessions
of Congress. Currently, Members of Congress are permitted to provide
constituents with copies of CRS reports and issue briefs upon request. Several commercial and noncommercial services make attempts to fill the need for public access to this information. Penny Hill Press has a topically arranged bibliography of recent CRS reports available at modest prices. The reports presented at this [FPLC] site were purchased from Penny Hill Press which has created a customized profile for the IP Mall and ships all current CRS reports on a standing order basis.

Llinks to other "U.S. Government IP Resources" are available from the FPLC here. For more, check out their "IP Links - Topical Index Sitemap" here.
