Sometimes the best blog posts and legal articles are the simplest.   Take, for example, a post from early October by Joshua Glazov on his Construction Law Today blog, where he simply cites a 1941 quote from US Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson: The legal profession, like many another, tends to become over-professionalized.  We forget that the law is the rule for simple and untaught people to live by.  We complicate and over-refine it as a weapon in legal combat until we take it off the ground… [read post]

Forfeiture cancellations suggest possible path to clearing backlogged complaints (and enforcement holds). It appears that the Commission may have taken the first steps – baby steps carefully cloaked from public view, perhaps, but steps nonetheless – toward addressing its hopeless backlog of broadcast complaints. In a series of super-low-key actions in recent weeks, the Media Bureau has quietly cancelled a number of previously assessed forfeitures. The actions have been… [read post]

by An Hertogen The cease fire in Gaza appears to hold, in what is seen as a test for the new Egyptian government’s ability to influence Hamas. More than 20 people have been killed in a suicide attack on a Shiite procession in Rawalpindi, in northern Pakistan. The Taliban has claimed responsibility. After successfully capturing Goma, the rebels in Eastern Congo are vowing to march on to Kinshasa. Mexico has asked for the creation of a WTO Panel to rule on the legality of Argentinian import… [read post]

Bill C-47, the Olympics marks bill demanded by the IOC, was back in the House of Commons yesterday as the Government moved that the bill be read a second time and be referred to committee.  James Moore, the MP who spoke on behalf of the government, ran on too long, however, leaving no time for debate (or even the ability to conclude his own remarks).

As I blogged earlier this week, the Industry Committee made some noteworthy changes to the Olympic Marks bill.  While the posting focused on the inclusion of protection for parody and electronic media, the revised bill also includes a new provision to protect artistic work that is not produced on a commercial scale.  The two new provisions are: (5) For greater certainty, the use of an Olympic or Paralympic mark or a translation of it in any language in the publication or… [read post]

Headlines Politico, pointing its readers at a very effective ad that they might otherwise avoid: The "questions" referred to in the headline are about who is helping Peterffy, a political neophyte, to make and place such ad. Typically, such ads call for supporting or opposing specific candidates, but Peterffy’s ad is more vague because it doesn’t mention specific candidates — only an encouragement to vote Republican.... Peterffy said he supports Republican candidates because he sees the… [read post]

Jonathan I. Ezor, special counsel to The Lustigman Firm and an Assistant Professor of Law at Touro Law Center, recently published his article, Busting Blocks: Revisiting 47 U.S.C. § 230 to Address the Lack of Effective Legal Recourse for Wrongful Inclusion in Spam Filters, in the University of Richmond Journal of Law and Technology (JOLT).

I have covered Bill C-47, the Olympic Corporate Sponsor Protection Act, in several postings (here and here).  The Vancouver Sun has fascinating article that demonstrates how C-47 is really just the tip of the iceberg.  It uncovered the list of official marks controlled by the various Canadian Olympic committees.  The list, which some IP lawyers argue represents a misuse of Section 9 of the Trademark Act, includes: See You in VancouverSee You in WhistlerSee You in… [read post]

Headlines Politico, pointing its readers at a very effective ad that they might otherwise avoid: The "questions" referred to in the headline are about who is helping Peterffy, a political neophyte, to make and place such ad. But there's nothing interesting there, and Peterffy comes across as an intelligent, persuasive independent: Typically, such ads call for supporting or opposing specific candidates, but Peterffy’s ad is more vague because it doesn’t mention specific candidates — only an… [read post]
