Restatement of Copyright, First, and other news

by Daniel Gervais on Tuesday, December 16th at 1:01 AM

Happy to report that I was just appointed Associate Reporter for the Restatement of Copyright, First.  Looking forward to working with this excellent team! Details at’s-restatement-of-law-copyright/

Three new publications available on the site:

1) Who Cares About the 85 percent? 

This coauthored article examines the role of survey evidence in trademark cases that claim online confusion.

2) IP Calibration

This chapter in the new (second) edition of my book Intellectual Property, Trade and Development (Oxford) examines the issue of calibration of intellectual property as part of a national innovation policy.

3) Patent flexibilities in China and India

In this chapter in a book on global patent law edited by Ruth Okediji and Margo Bagley, I look at a specific example of calibration in patent policy (subject matter) in two countries that took a different approach. I had the pleasure of presenting this paper in December 2014 at a University of London in Paris event (held at the Conseil Britannique).
