    Death in the Afternoon comments on:

    1. Recent IP outrages. You can't, of course, use copyright to remove titles (I don't mean duke or earl, I mean, you know, "Ninomania," or "Death in the Afternoon") from the use of fellow human beings, but it's amazing what you can do with the far more fascistic field of trademark.

    2. Should law-student bloggers have to run a conflicts-check before they do any legal analysis on their blogs? This may be more of a problem for "Death"'s Elm City colleagues than for (many of) my students, simple because, at this point in time (I say nothing of five years from now!) more of the former than of the latter have summer jobs with firms big enough to be able to make themselves unpleasant over this. Still, there it is.

    Oh and by the way, the above trashtalking of IP and of big firms should not be taken as my considered or definitive position, in case there are any big IP firms reading this! (Just kidding. You couldn't pry me away from teaching with a crowbar.) (Yessir, I love teaching with a crowbar. Kidding again!)
