Calling for Greater Public Accountability in Big Pharma‘s Patent Collaborations

My beat on is typically, if not all too predictably, the copyright trials and tribulations of scholarly communication. I’d be the first to admit that matters of access to this body of knowledge are relatively straightforward compared to what takes place next door with patent licensing, especially when pharmaceuticals are involved. Still, such patents disputes, which often involve government, university, and industry, can shed light on my interests in legal reforms that restore some part ...

Can I Make My Own Audio Book for an Authors Book

I'd like to make an audio book based off of a book that I like with my own voice and post it to YouTube. Legal? If not, can I make a podcast of me analyzing the book after I read the book first? Fair use. Not charging for this either.

Trying to Understand What is Trademarkable

NIKE and the swoosh are both trademarked. So that indicates a source, right? All items with that name and image are associated as being a part of, or coming from that NIKE family (the source). Am I right in thinking of a trademark being like an umbrella covering a family? Okay, if NIKE had one shoe called Cool Colleen Trainer. Is that name trademarkable?

Trademarks: If a Single Book Title Has First Use, but

If a single book title has first use, but is not trademarkable since it’s a title of one book, and a company comes along and gets a trademark for that name (the title of that book) and has a brand built around that name, and then the original book gets a complete update, a new cover, new content and a new ISBN (which indicates a new product), does the company who published the book still have first use rights since it is now a new product?
