Copyright Law

Post by North » Mon Dec 17, 2018 12:35 pm

Got a good friend who wants to do this. I assume the play here is to go to the best school possible, but limit debt as much as possible?

Not sure what you're asking. Isn't that the play always regardless of what you think you want to do?

I mean yeah I guess. I guess I'm asking whether there are any special considerations to take into account when you're looking to go into this area?

I think yes but also like depending on your goals those two interests may get balanced differently to the extent that they conflict, right?

It depends what he means by copyright law.

For lit, I don’t know anyone who specialized in copyright work right out of law school. If on the lit side, there is just so much more patent lit than trademark or copyright lit. It seems like the small number of lawyers who focus on copyright and trademark work did so later in their career. That being said, most of the ip litigators I know get occasional trademark and copyright work. Note I am in a small market where there are no specialists in ip lit, so in bigger markets it’s possible most litigators never see a copyright or trademark case.

I imagine it’s similar with IP transactions but that’s a blind guess.

If he’s just talking about registering copyrights, he doesn’t actually want to do that. I’ve done a couple and they are easy and cookie-cutter. It’s form work and registering copyrights all day would be some special kind of hell.
