"Disappointing and Inspiring": Roosevelt Fellows and Colleages React to FinReg
The financial reform legislation is both disappointing and inspiring. The legislation is the product of a broken government process where dollars overwhelm voters. Lobbying in the gazillions predictably stopped the needed major structural reforms that were revealed by the scope and scale of the financial crisis. As a result we still have "too big to fail" firms with the perverse incentive (subsidy) that their default-free status confers upon them. We still have many practices that are not transparent and many off balance sheet problems that disguise the conditions of our financial firms. We are also still a society ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

How can I protect animated characters I've created from being used ...
I am trying to understand the difference between copyright and trademark. I have developed a cast of characters I will be using in animated shorts, and I basically want to make sure that no one else can use the characters I've created for anything without my permission.

If I do so, will my cast of characters be protected from other people copying the characters and using them in other contexts, either as individually or as the cast of characters? My research so far has made it sound like as long as ...
