Dear Ms. Espinel.

Congratulations on your appointment and confirmation as the U.S. Intellectual Property Enforcement
Coordinator at OMB.

In your press release of February 23, 2010 you noted that, "Intellectual property are the ideas behind
inventions, the artistry that goes into books and music, and the logos of companies whose brands we
have come to trust. My job is to help protect the ideas and creativity of the American public."

And you asked for input.

You can help by protecting the intellectual property of independent inventors from predatory agencies
like the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

1. Last November, in a FOIA lawsuit against NASA, they sent me about 4,000 pages of documents.
Until then I thought NASA had been ignoring me all the years since I filed a claim for compensation for
the use of one of my aerospace patents in their X-38 project. The documents tell a different story. It's a
story of deception, conspiracy, and criminal misconduct by a rogue group within NASA. The case is still
going on.

See my blog on my FOIA lawsuit:

I am also attaching a very relevant document, the Second Amended Complaint: Doc016-1.pdf

2. Despite a new Administrator and Deputy Administrator, NASA has not changed yet. As a result of a
second FOIA Request to NASA I learned that NASA's Office of the General Counsel (OGC) considers
itself above the law. Their response to my Second FOIA Request is probative.

For example, OGC claims to have no records regarding the number of claims for infringement they
have affirmed, and their records of claims for infringement are incomplete to the point of being criminal.

If the Federal Government does not respect the intellectual property of its citizens, your efforts in your
new position will be to no avail.

Sincerely yours,

Jed Margolin
