Information has become the global currency of the 21st century. Managing it is no longer the exclusive province of IT or security. Every operational and strategic part of the enterprise is now involved in this critical task.


There is a security paradox facing business today: secrecy still matters for all the traditional reasons; but success requires sharing and trust in a flatter world of fleeting, shallow relationships, where risks abound. Like other business vulnerabilities, these factors can also hold opportunity; but they must be managed. 


Mr. Pooley realized anyone trying to make sense of this complex new world needs a plainspoken guide that puts the subject in context and helps them make smart decisions about intellectual property and all of the (often surprising) issues that connect to it. Hence, Secrets was born.

Introduction to Patents (2002, 2013, Federal Judicial Center). Years ago, concerned about the inefficiency of patent litigants calling expert witnesses to teach juries about the operation of the patent system, Mr. Pooley conceived and drafted the script for a video that could be shown by all federal courts to prospective jurors, ensuring that they received an objective presentation on this important issue before beginning their work on a patent case. The video was produced by the Federal Judicial Center and was first released in 2002. Used since then by federal courts throughout the country, the video was updated and released again in 2013.
