Here are some IP stories that will give you weekend reading and viewing:

  • UCLA Professor Doug Lichtman launched the IP Colloquium, a series of podcasts focused on the most pressing IP issues of the day.  Lichtman tells me he aspires for the IP Colloquium to become National Public Radio for IP lawyers.  Lichtman is well on his way.  In his first episode, Lichtman discusses copyright issue with the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s Fred von Lohmann.  And if the content is not enough, Lichtman has also secured CLE credit in several states.
  • IPTABlog has a comprehensive post — click here to read it — on Google’s settlement with the Association of American Publishers over the Google Book Search.  The post links to much of the media coverage, as well as the settlement agreement.  Also, check out the WSJ Law Blog’s post on the settlement’s impact on related cases (click here to read it) and Madisonian’s take on the issues springing from the settlement (click here to read that post).
