New enhancements for IntelliConnect®

We continue to advance IntelliConnect to meet the evolving needs of our customers as the industry changes, so we’re happy to announce the two new enhancements below. These new features will help you utilize our content more fully and allow you to collaborate with colleagues.

Add Notes and Highlights—Make and save notes and/or add highlights to documents within IntelliConnect. Keep notes and highlights for your own personal use or share them using shared research folders.
Share Research Folders—Create and share your research folders, including your notes and highlights, with other users in your account. Plus, you can customize who to share with, what type of access they have (read vs. write), and how long they have access to the folder.

You’ll find more details on these features in the IntelliConnect Fall 2013 Enhancements video, as well as the updated IntelliConnect Quick Reference Card.


New briefing paper: SEC Implements Dodd-Frank Municipal Advisor Regulatory Regime Against Backdrop of Pending Legislation

Wolters Kluwer Law & Business Principal Analyst, Jim Hamilton, has written a briefing paper discussing the SEC’s implementation of the Dodd-Frank municipal advisor regulatory regime. Highlights of the report include:

  • Requirement that municipal advisors providing advice to, on behalf of, or soliciting municipal entities must register with the SEC
  • Exemption for funds held in a sweep account or investment made by a bank acting as an indenture trustee
  • Final rule that preserves the municipal advisor registration requirement for banks that provide advice with respect to municipal derivatives
  • Municipal Advisor Oversight Improvement Act designed to allow more appropriate oversight and implementation by the SEC

Patent Interference Practice Handbook renamed Priority of Invention and the AIA

The Wolters Kluwer Law & Business publication Patent Interference Practice Handbook by Jerome Rosenstock has had a title change. The new title is Priority of Invention and the AIA. This title better reflects the changes in the law after the passage of the America Invents Act. Under the new law, patent interference practice will eventually no longer exist.
