Self-Addressed Envelope after it’s been through the Mail Every time I speak about copyright to a group of artists or writers, someone always asks me about how poor man’s copyright works and whether it’s valid. Poor man’s copyright is the idea that you can establish that you created something first by mailing a copy of your work to yourself and using the date on the postmark as proof of when you created it. If anyone copies your work and claims a creation date that’s… [read post]

The Supreme Court in Quanta Computer, Inc. v. LG Electronics, Inc., 2008 WL 2329719, 86 USPQ2d 1673 (US 2008) confirmed both the importance of patent exhaustion as a doctrine and the appropriate limitations of that doctrine - the doctrine does not apply to transactions that are conditional in nature.
