Around the IP Blogs!

Exploring IP cyberspace!
This kitten is delighted to bring you the highlights from some recently published IP blogs!

Marie-Andree Weiss of The 1709 Blog reports on Pena v. Celebrities Unlimited, Inc., 1:17-cv-01853-PGG. The case involved the unauthorized reproduction and sale of framed copies of a photograph taken during a Texas Rangers baseball game.

Michael Geist blogs about the digitization of books and fair dealing in Canada within the context of Concordia University case, which involved the unauthorized scanning and uploading of poetry books for five students. 

CREATe announces that the resource page of the first Copyright Education Symposium, held in 2016, is now online. The event was sponsored by CREATe, ALCS, CLA, ERA, PRS for Music, and the Industry Trust for IP Awareness and was supported by UKIPO. The commissioned working paper prepared by InternKat Hayleigh Bosher can be reviewed here.

Moving to trademarks, Friso Onderdelinden discusses on the Kluwer Trademark Blog three cases brought before Dutch courts, which involve the unauthorized use of trademarks in clothing (as a decorative artwork) and pet accessories.

Finally, over at The TTABlog, John L. Welch analyzes Christian Lacroix v. Christian Lacroix, Snc, in which the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board (USPTO) dismissed an opposition based on fraud, which had alleged a lack of consent for the trademark registration.
