UCLA, School of Law Research Paper No. 03-9

Abstract:     
This article makes several different observations about the Free Speech Clause and intellectual property law, in light of some recent doctrinal developments:

(1) the Court's decision about copyright in Eldred v. Ashcroft;

(2) the Court's evolving commercial speech jurisprudence in cases such as 44 Liquormart v. Rhode Island, which is relevant to trademark dilution law;

(3) the California Supreme Court's right of publicity decision in Comedy III Productions v. Saderup; and

(4) the Court's decision in Bartnicki v. Vopper, which indirectly bears on trade secret law.
