Welcome to our monthly recap of stories relating to intellectual property (including copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, etc.) and entertainment law – art, animation, television, film, digital games, etc. This month’s stories cover many issues including: Warner Bros. Can sue Tolkien Estate over Hobbit contract; Janet Jackson’s legal team takes down fans’ videos from social media; what’s next for Christo?; social media & defamation; Google gets another win in book-scanning court challenge; NFL vs. Twitter; DNA being used to authenticate art; and more.

These are some of the articles, reports, posts, etc. that caught our attention this month. We originally send them out through our twitter account @dg_iplaw, so follow us to get them as we find them. But many of them are such great resources we don’t want you to miss them, so we’ve decided to put them as a weekly recap. The links will take you to their original sources, whether Mashable, Lexology, and/or others. Enjoy and let us know some of the stories you’ve found interesting this week. Just share in the comments below. Have a great week!
