Okay, it’s a little late to actually attend his talk — but then again, most of LOC readers don’t really get to Iowa Idaho that often. Still, it’s worth clicking around Stephen Nipper‘s “Ten Things Every Designer Needs to Know about Copyrights and Trademarks” blog post (the post of the talk) (actually, not a post- post, but pre-post) (of the talk). It has some cool stuff in it, in particular a list of relevant information that I may just have to fair-usefully pick and port over here myself…

The question of whether consumers are likely to be confused is the signal inquiry that determines if a trademark infringement claim is valid. This blog is about trademark law, copyright law, free speech (mostly as it relates to the Internet) and legal issues related to blogging.
As for me, I'm a partner and commercial litigator at Goetz Fitzpatrick LLP with offices in New York and New Jersey (but active nationwide) and, some say, "IP maven" with a special interest in copyright and trademark infringement involving the Internet--including advising clients how to avoid them.

THIS BLOG IS ONLY A BLOG, NOT LEGAL ADVICE. IT IS IN PART AN ADVERTISEMENT FOR LEGAL SERVICES BY ME, LAWYER RONALD D. COLEMAN, BUT I AM NOT YOUR LAWYER. YOU ARE NOT MY CLIENT. JUST WALK BESIDE ME AND BE MY FRIEND.
The term of art maven is used to mean "wise guy" here and is not meant to suggest that I have certified or other "expertise" in any particular field of legal practice. But try me.
CATEGORIES (a work in progress)
I’m high-ranked and I know it.
Is LIKELIHOOD OF CONFUSION® really all that? Rankings-wise? Is it really one of the top law blogs in the galaxy?
It is, for what that's worth.
As of right now, here are the latest rankings via:

- All IP law blogs, by popularity, on Justia

It's easy it is to game almost any ranking system, not that I've tried to. As such. These are just what they are.
