I was born on 2nd May of some beautiful year. Graduated from the University of Gdańsk, the Faculty of Law, Center of European Law. I also studied international IP law as part of the LL.M. Program in International Intellectual Property Law at Chicago-Kent College of Law. I am a Polish patent and trade mark attorney and European trade mark and design attorney.
I am an author (and I probably will be) of couple of less or more scientific articles concerning intellectual property and new technologies issues. I am Polish country correspondent for the Computer and Telecommunications Law Review. I am also a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Intellectual Property Law & Practice and I am one of the founding members of the Editorial Committe of the International Free and Open Source Software Law Review and the author of a Polish chapter in the International Free and Open Source Software Law Book published by Open Source Press GmbH.
Writing a CV is not my purpose here. For your information, however, my first contact with the Internet was in 1994. I was given a shell account on the University server panda.bg.univ.gda.pl working with the HP UNIX® operating system.

Contact and legal advices
I created and have been updating this website to have a comprehensive compilation of resources of issues I am interested in. Generally I focus my interests on IP and IT law, especially trademarks, trade secrets and copyright but I am also interested in legal issues of computers and telecommunication networks. If you want to contact with me, do not hesitate. Just use (my Polish name)@rychlicki.net e-mail address. I will do my best to answer each e-mail I will receive. I really care about e-mails with information on mistakes on these webpages! Thanks for your help.
