Michael Factor is an Israel registered patent attorney and lawyer.
In addition to managing the IP Factor, an opinionated blog covering IP issues from an Israeli perspective, I am a member of the Jurisdiction and Law Committee of the INTA Bulletin and will be writing fortnightly Israel trademark updates for that publication.
Over 2009 and 2010 I wrote a bimonthly column in the World Intellectual Property Review (WIPR), a monthly jurisdiction report in Managing Intellectual Property (MIP), and weekly Israel IP reports for Intellectual Property Management (IAM).
In addition to a law degree, Michael has a PhD in Applied Physics and an M.Eng. in Materials Science and Engineering.
