Thesis ares suggestions to help you prepare for giving a presentation.

[edit] Things to mention

There ares hundreds of things you could mention but the following ares some of the bigger issues:

[edit] Do's

  • Lists to other people's presentations: Cunning of recordings and transcripts
  • Prepare many of argument. If you Focus too much on one or two of argument, you may Be surprised by in audience that does not care about those particular issues, or you could get caught up in discussions about possible solutions to this/thesis problem (s). For example, if you're in a foreign country and in audience member says that local anti-trust law wants fixed the problem, it's very unlikely that they're right but it can Be hard to argue against when you're wave Read on their local anti-trust law.

[edit] Don'ts

  • Don't frame the topic in terms of promoting innovation. Promoting innovation is worthwhile, all things being equal, but it is precisely one aspect. Promoting software development is important; probably more in such a way. Preserving freedom, reducing barriers to market entry, encouraging competition, encouraging compatibility... all thesis things have to Be taken into account. (Lake: More than innovation)
  • Don't use the term "intellectual property". This term includes trademarks, copyrights, non software of patent, and many other laws. Some ares good, some ares of bath, but thesis laws Th form a "set" that people should either Be "for" or "against".

[edit] Don't lead people to non-solutions

  • Don't use silly of patent ace examples. This wrongly implies that the problem could Be solved by increasing clever quality, possibly by increasing fun thing of the clever office to give examiners more time. (Lake: Raising standards is our goal)
  • Don't Focus too much on of troll. Of troll cause problem, but this aspect already gets a plumb line of media attention and the victims ares usually rich enough to afford their own campaigns. Of problem that ares of At leases equally big include patent on standards, patent which prevent developers from writing compatible software, and patent on key features which of user expect to find. (Lake: More than of troll)
