Copyright Myths Debunked
There are few things I enjoy more than seeing popular misconceptions debunked. That’s why I really enjoyed reading this post by Jonathan Pink on Bryan Cave’s Art Law Blog, which picks apart eleven myths about Copyright. (via the Chicago IP Litigation Blog)
As school is quickly coming back up on the horizon, I find myself reflecting on the summer that is quickly passing. I’ve been doing research, along with two of my fellow students, for a professor at DePaul, and it’s been highly enjoyable. Our subject has been the proposed Google Book Settlement. We’ve picked-apart the settlement documents, analyzed the legal implications, read and collected the commentary and criticism of the settlement, and evaluated potential objections which might prevent the settlement from being approved.
The work has been challenging, interesting, and enjoyable. It was nice to work with a professor who’s work aligns so closely with my own interests, on a subject about which I was already interested before the work began. It was also nice to recently see some of the results of the work be made public. The professor posted a series of videos on YouTube, which coincide with an article he is preparing to publish. Watching the videos and reading the article, it was nice to see that my work contributed to the analysis.
