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: art show captures school’s closing; social media defamation is on the rise; cartoon studios can’t escape animator’s suit; the creative apocalypse that wasn’t; after Katrina, New Orleans museums reckon with recovery; new breed of advisors for art collectors; suit over reality TV arrest thrown out; do you own your artwork?; Instagram’s growing role in the art market; is ‘Happy Birthday’ in the public domain yet?; 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!
