Boalt's Samuelson Clinic Files Amicus Brief in Second Circuit IP Case
On May 12, 2005, Boalt's Samuelson Clinic submitted a brief amicus curiae on behalf of thirty intellectual property and constitutional law professors in the case of United States v. Martignon. The case concerns the federal criminal anti-bootlegging statute, which the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York struck down last year because it violated both the Limited Times and Writings requirements in the Constitution's Copyright Clause.
Formally known as the Samuelson Law, Techonology & Public Policy Clinic, this program actively represents the public interest in public interest in cases and matters on the cutting-edge of high technology law. The Samuelson Clinic is also a joint sponsor of the Chilling Effects Clearinghouse, a resource designed to help amateur internet users (like me!) understand how First Amendment and intellectual property laws apply to online expressive activities.
