Five Great Copyright Articles

Quiet week overall, but some good stuff on copyright.

Michael Cohen, of the Trademark Blog, has a great synopsis of the recent 9th Circuit decision regarding the registration requirement for copyright infringement lawsuits.

Alina Ng, of the Mississippi College of Law, has written a journal article on property rights and copyright. “Exclusionary property rights in creative works, arise, if at all, to protect an author’s creative integrity, validate the importance of authentic authorship, and provide personal and moral incentives for authors to produce creative works of social value.”

Ray Dowd, in his fair use Friday entry, writes about injunctions and fair use: “The Digital Millenium Copyright Act makes it a crime to circumvent encryption to rip someone else’s copyrighted materials.  So isn’t that criminal statute an impermissible prior restraint on free speech?”

Pamela Chestek has a great copyright and employment law read, teasing out a recent case between an independent contractor and a real estate agency that hired the IC. The fight was over photographs of properties for sale taken by the IC while he was working for the real estate agency. Who won? Read it here.

Last but not least, Jonathan Bailey gives us eleven free copyright protections for artists and photographers. It’s a good and quick read.
