Updated:

Divorce happens! According to the National Center for Health Statistics, there is one divorce for every two marriages since the year 2000.

    Fair Use Explained: When You Can Legally Copy Someone Else’s Work

    How To Avoid a Trip To Court

    Sunday, November 10 2013 12:03 AM EST2013-11-10 05:03:11 GMT
    “Copyright” is not a verb. It is a noun. We, as human beings, as thinkers of creative ideas, create copyrights (literally out of thin air) when such an idea is expressed into or onto some form of tangible medium. Such a tangible expression is called “a work of authorship.” If such works are truly original and not merely copied from, or strikingly similar to, someone else’s prior, protectable tangible works of authorship, then a copyright, an incorporeal personal property right owned by the ...

    What Every Employee Needs To Know About Holidays

    What's Legal and What's Not?

    Saturday, November 9 2013 12:01 AM EST2013-11-09 05:01:12 GMT
    As Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day approach, I get questions about legal holidays off, whether employers must pay for holiday time, and whether employees who work on holidays are required to be paid overtime or double time. I thought I’d touch on some of the biggest legal questions I get about holidays. If it’s a legal holiday, isn’t my employer required to let me take off? Many people think that employers are required to grant holiday time off. This is completely untrue. No f...

    Divorce is Deadlier Than You Think

    Monday, November 4 2013 1:15 PM EST2013-11-04 18:15:33 GMT
    It is often said, sometimes with tongue in cheek, that the three most stressful times in people’s lives are death, divorce, and moving house. There is also the perception that these events, and in particular divorce, cause more stress for women than men. However, the Daily Mail has very recently reported on research carried out in the states which reveals that the suicide rate amongst divorced men is 39% higher than for their married counterparts. The report suggests that men in divorce of...

    A new week, a new NSA controversy. Now, according to published reports, the National Security Agency can access data on your smartphone. From Der Speigel: The United States’ National Security Agency intelligence-gathering operation is capable of accessing user data from smart phones from all leading manufacturers.

    President Barack Obama recently vetoed the United States International Trade Commission’s (USITC) import ban on certain Apple products such as the iPhone 4, and it is worth considering how this veto may alter the litigation strategies of technology companies with large patent portfolios, including patents that may be considered standard essential patents (SEPs). This case was notable because it was the first USITC import ban vetoed by a U.S. President since 1987. To recap, earlier this sum...

    What To Do If Someone Is Infringing On Your Patent

    What To Do If Someone Is Infringing On Your Patent

    Thursday, October 10 2013 10:31 AM EDT2013-10-10 14:31:38 GMT
    Abraham Lincoln once praised the patent laws for having “secured to the inventor, for a limited time, the exclusive use of his invention; and thereby added the fuel of interest to the fire of genius, in the discovery and production of new and useful things.” Innovation is the engine that drives much of the country’s economy, and vulnerable startups depend on patents for valuation, protection, and reward for their ingenuity.

    The recent NFL settlement will pay $685 million into a pool to compensate former players suffering neurological injury from football-induced head trauma. At first blush, the deal seems just like so many other settlements: an uneasy compromise by both sides to avoid the unknown risks of the courtroom. Is the settlement fair? That depends largely on evidence of the NFL's accountability that now remains private, combined with evaluation of the nature and extent of the..

    Older Than Her Age? A Montana Judge’s Messy Sentencing

    Older Than Her Age? A Montana Judge’s Messy Sentencing

    Thursday, October 10 2013 10:29 AM EDT2013-10-10 14:29:38 GMT
    A Montana judge is currently under fire for comments he made while sentencing a convicted rapist. Judge G. Todd Baugh sentenced a teacher, convicted of raping one of his students, to what amounts to 30 days in jail for violating the terms of his original plea. One of the reasons he gave for the low sentence was that he felt the 14 year old victim acted older than her age, and that she was as much in control of the situation as the teacher. There are several parts to this story. First, ther...

    Is The U.S. At Fault For The Russian Adoption Ban?

    Thursday, October 10 2013 10:29 AM EDT2013-10-10 14:29:06 GMT
    On December 2012, the Russian Federation enacted into law an adoption ban that effectively halted all United States citizens from adopting Russian orphans. The new law has been called the Adoption Ban, the Dima Yakovlev Law, or the Anti-Magnitsky Act depending on the view and political orientation of the commentator. Despite the name of the ban, the effects were clear. Hundreds of prospective parents in the process of adopting children were halted in their tracks. Children that were on trac...
