DG Esq’s Monthly Recap 7/01/15 – Stories Relating to IP and Entertainment Law


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: how TV won the Internet; Salcedo’s political art at the Guggenheim; PBS & Ben Affleck trouble; YouTube no longer the only online stage for new stars; silent discos let you dance to your own beat; judge rejects “new Girl” idea theft claim; EU judges says kit-kat shape cannot be trademarked; Belushi sues for defamation; 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!
