I concentrate in copyright law, particularly as applied to: computer software, content of the Internet, plagiarism, protecting authors and copyright owners for their scholarly work, copying of books and periodicals for use in teaching at schools, colleges, and universities, copying of books and periodicals for use in scholarly research, and copyright on sheet music in education, especially baroque or classical music.

first attempted to establish a federal regime for the protection of trademarks. This statute, purported to be an exercise of the Copyright Clause powers, was struck down in the Trade-Mark Cases , leading Congress to finally create a successful act under its Commerce Clause power in 1881. A major revision was enacted in 1905, and in 1946, Congress passed the Lanham Act , which currently defines federal protection and registration for trademarks, administered by the United States Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO"). State law continues to add its own protection, complementing the federal system.

U's hot new apple already made into tort
More than a dozen apple growers filed a lawsuit in Hennepin County District Court Wednesday over an exclusive licensing agreement that the University of Minnesota and Pepin Heights Orchard have struck over what's being touted as the latest and greatest apple to hit the market -- the SweeTango. The growers expect that the new apple variety created by U researchers will take a big bite out of the apples already on the market. But the growers who filed the suit argue the university's licensing agreement with Pepin severely limits their ability to grow, sell and ultimately profit from the SweeTango, a cross between the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Cheating increases incumbent home-court advantage
State House candidate Jim Marshall's parents, Bob and Peg Marshall, pose for a portrait inside the room at their home which served as their son's campaign headquarters. The contrasts couldn't have been more stark. When Jim Marshall challenged incumbent Democrat Mike Veon for a state House seat in 2006, he put his 84-year-old mother to work hand-addressing 6,000 campaign post cards. His brother-in-law Pat Montani, meanwhile, whipped up hundreds of meatballs for a campaign dinner at a firehouse. His family bought a used copy machine so an all-volunteer team could make black-and-white copies of campaign fliers. Even ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

CA Sales Tax Law & Affiliates
�This legislation will close the current loophole in California tax law which has allowed out-of-state companies to avoid collecting California sales and use tax,� said Assemblymember Nancy Skinner (D � Berkeley). �During this unprecedented fiscal crisis we cannot afford to lose sales tax revenue from out-of-state companies when our own local businesses are struggling to keep their doors open.� So apparently Nancy Skinner doesn't realize that there will be a backlash against California affiliates just like there was against New York, and she'll be costing her constituents that earn affiliate income their livelihood. ...

During much of the Nineteenth century the employment contract was based on the Master and Servant Act of 1823, designed to discipline employees and repress the 'combination' of workers in Trade unions. Employment Law in the United Kingdom has developed rapidly over the past forty years, due to a historically strong Trades Union movement and to the United Kingdom's membership of the European Union. In its current form, it is largely a creature of Statute, (Acts of the UK Parliament) rather than Common Law. Leading Employment Law Statutes include the Employment Rights Act 1996, the Employment Act 2002 and various ...
