New Right Of Publicity Site

My good friend Jonathan Faber launched a great publicity rights resource with links to current litigation, statutes, and related information.

His site includes a link to my BNA article discussing recent changes in Washington and California publicity rights statutes.

Well worth the browse.

The DMCA Turns Ten

I'll be presenting at the upcoming 14th Annual Intellectual Property Institute, a Washington State Bar Association CLE, sponsored by the Intellectual Property Section. My topic, The DMCA Turns Ten, focuses on cases that have shaped the progress of the DMCA, and emerging business models that challenge copyright owners going forward.

Is it time to retune the DMCA?
