Rick spoke at the 62nd Annual IP Conference at John Marshall Law School, in Chicago, on November 2. He was part of a panel discussing recent developments about copyright law. He was asked to speak particularly about the two recent 9th Circuit decisions involving the copyrightability of poses (previously blogged about). (He also had a few things to say about the Oracle v. Google case, because as you know he has opinions about that one.) The intellectually diverse panel included Professor Maureen Collins, of the John Marshall Law School; Arica Hilton, a Chicago-based gallery owner; Marci Rolknik Walker, the Legal Director of Lawyers for the Creative Arts; and Professor Guy Rub of The Ohio State University Michael E. Moritz College of Law. The panel was ably moderated by William T. McGrath, a partner with Davis McGrath LLC and Associate Director of the Center for Intellectual Property, Information & Privacy Law at John Marshall Law School. Although he loves to visit Chicago, Rick was a good boy and spent the entire day Friday at the conference, which he reported to be stimulating and worthwhile.
