While I travel for a few pressing client matters, here are a couple of podcasts and IP stories worth a read or listen:

  • At the end of August, I had the privilege of joining Jeremy Phillips and Philip Parker on Duncan Bucknell’s IP Think Tank Podcast.  We discussed the impact of the recession on global patenting and the quality of patents in the US, Japan and Europe.  Click here  for the podcast.
  • The latest installment of Doug Lichtman’s IP Colloquium is available here.  Lichtman investigates the scope of the derivative work rights in copyright law, using a recent case that questioned whehter a Harry Potter was a derivative work based upon J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series.  It is a great listen and comes with free CLE credit.  Click here for the podcast.
