Just to clarify any confusion about licensing, an attorney is no more entitled to administer a license agreement than someone off the street.

I'm not clear what is meant by "administer" a license.  If it's to take it up after it's been drafted and agreed to, then I agree with Orange.  If it's to draft the agreement and hold it out as being legally sufficient, that's the practice of law.

Although I have only been posting on this forum for a few months, I have noticed many things that all should be aware of while using htis site.
 
First, there are many attorneys, or people claiming to be attorneys on this site that give wrong/bad advice.  Even if the advice comes from a "moderator" on this forum, it is not necessarily correct.  
 
Second, there are non-attorneys that give wrong/bad advice.
 
Please take all advice with caution.  You should always consult a REGISTERED patent attorney, preferably one that practices with a reputable firm, to ensure sound legal advice.  Also, there is no supplement for using the MPEP that is published online at uspto.gov.

 
 
While that is good advice, are you suggesting that the firm you work for is reputable?  What is reputable?  Would the attorneys have to have gone to a top 10 school?  What about their science backgrounds?  Should they have gone to a top 10 school as well?  Is your undergrad a top 10?  What about your law school?  What about the spelling errors in your post?
 
You are right, advice should be taken with caution, but I am not sure what you are suggesting is all that true.  I think you are also insulting the solos and patent agents by your post.

Actually there are many supplements, including other information available from the USPTO, case law, text books, and advice from practitioners and examiners, just to name a few.
