Patently Impossible: IP Lawyers Raise $8,000 for Legal Aid
The Intellectual Property Committee of the Dade County Bar Association had grown weary of the typical attorney cocktail reception thrown to raise money for a good cause, so the Committee devised The Patently Impossible Project, which was a charity race to assemble a patented invention based only on patent provided, various parts and tools. The patent selected was US Design Patent No. D366,908, simply titled Toy Catapult. The event was staged on Friday, December 3, 2010, at the Miami Science Museum, with proceeds going to The Legal Aid Society, which is the oldest legal services provider for the indigent in Miami-Dade County.
