It’s been an interesting Day for IP

Microsoft fights to keep “Windows” trademark.

ClearChannel owns a method of media distribution outright. (Why travel to some far-away island to protest the G8 Summit when the PTO and FCC are in a very lovely city? Well, Not lovely right now, but. . . ) Why they should be able to own an artist’s right to reproduce their performance is beyond me. I guess we need a mandatory 5 day waiting period before we can buy CDs.

FCC already gave away some control over your own property. Now they are removing more of it. I hear a lot about “activist judges.” How about we start talking about activist agencies? Especially when they start doing public takings.
