Welcome to Trenholm Warren LLC’s legal blog.
Deciding whether something is fair or foul is paramount in both sports and the law. Fair use itself is a central defense to many copyright and trademark disputes. At the core of the law in general is the reality that an action may be determined to be legal or illegal; infringing or not; fair or foul.
I will be commenting here on topical events in copyright, trademark, sports, media and other related fields of law. As a former athlete and sports agent I may even write about current events in sports business as well.
I have included links in this blog to two articles I wrote that were published last year. This will give you an idea of some of my legal interests and what I will use this blog to write about. First, is my article, “GIF Gaffe,” that was published in Fordham’s Intellectual Property, Media & Entertainment Law Journal. That article is long but if you have an interest in sports, digital copyright, and/or media law it should be an easy read.
The second article I have linked to is a much shorter one I wrote for the SportsBusiness Journal on the same subject. Think of it as the crib notes version of my longer article.
