3D Printing vs. Intellectual Property Law?

June 23, 2013 Leave a comment

Just as inkjet printers deposit drops of ink to create a document, 3-D printers lay down bits of plastic, metal, or other material to build an object. But as 3-D printers enter the consumer market, they may also fashion new challenges for intellectual property law.

Prof down! My injury, your gain. The most popular posts about intellectual property, revisited.

August 5, 2012 Leave a comment

If you know me personally you probably know I’ve been going through quite an ordeal lately. Three weeks or so ago a wonderful game of tennis turned injury-laden for this aging (gracefully?) former collegiate and professional athlete.

I suffered a partial tear of my plantar fascia and was sidelined for two weeks before I could even get up and around on my own and at least return to my own city and home.

Physical therapy is just around the corner now that the acute pain and most swelling has subsided. Also just around the corner? A new sport!

Just posting a quick “check in” to assure you both my scholarship about intellectual property issues and my end of summer posts about current hot topics are “in progress”. So, my injury is your gain. I was sidelined long enough to enjoy substantial periods of rest AND to find significant pockets of productivity time in between.

Hope you’re enjoying a wonderfully restful and productive summer too. Many thanks for remaining plugged into ProfTonyaEvans.com. Check out some of my most popular posts from my archives:

Be well,

Prof. TE

Many people share content they find on the Internet but are you doing it legally? How do you know for sure? Because, after all, something that is available on the Internet does not equal something freely available in the “public domain”, at least as defined by copyright law.

Get the answers to these and other questions in plain English from intellectual property and entertainment law expert Associate Professor Tonya M. Evans,  on WITF Radio Smart Talk, Wednesday, July 25th 9:00-10:00 AM Eastern (89.5 and 93.3, Central PA, USA and available via live stream).

You can also participate in the convo and submit your questions and comments by following @WITFnews and @LegalWritePub.

During the show you will:

  • Learn how to avoid infringing copyright in the online environment
  • Identify what’s considered fair use
  • Learn how to protect and share your own literary and artistic productions; and
  • Explore the free exchange of information debate

The discussion is based on Copyright Companion for Writers, by Tonya Evans.

UPDATE: WITF Radio Smart Talk interview on copyright & the Internet postponed

July 23, 2012 Leave a comment

Due to breaking news in the Penn State scandal and the NCAA presser, this morning’s interview on Radio Smart Talk (WITF) has been postponed and will be rescheduled. Please post your comments and questions about how copyright laws apply to and may be at odds with the free exchange of ideas in the new public commons known as the Internet.

I’ll make a note to address some of them during the interview.

Until then, here are some great resources in addition to our plain English legal reference guides, ebooks and teleclass audio downloads and our free e-Reports on various topics. One featured audio download directly on point for today’s topic is “Copyright for Writers on the Web”.

This topic is evergreen and ever-changing. So I look forward to the next opportunity to discuss it with you in the near future.

Prof. Tonya Evans talks facts and myths of copyright, free exchange & the Web on WITF Radio Smart Talk 7/23 9AM ET

Digital technology and the Internet has forever changed the way people create, distribute and access creative literary and artistic productions. The World Wide Web platform allows with few if any express barriers for anyone to copy, adapt and “share” perfect digital copies of arts and information via peer-to-peer networks, e-mail, blogs, social networking media and other means.

Copyright law, however, is not nearly so permissive. Many people share content they find on the Internet but are you doing it legally? How do you know for sure? Because, after all, something that is available on the Internet does not equal something freely available in the “public domain”, at least as defined by copyright law.

Get the answers to these and other questions in plain English from intellectual property and entertainment law expert Associate Professor Tonya M. Evans,  on WITF Radio Smart Talk, Monday, July 23rd at 9-10 AM Eastern (89.5 and 93.3, Central Pennsylvania and available via live stream).

During the show you will:

  • Learn how to avoid infringing copyright in the online environment
  • Identify what’s considered fair use
  • Learn how to protect and share your own literary and artistic productions; and
  • Explore the free exchange of information debate
