Kettle III, Naira Rezende Simmons, and Aman Gebru covering a wide range of topics: from the examination of USTPO from a Patent examiner’s perspective, a call for legislative action to increase protection of an “idea creator”, and to an examination of international Traditional Knowledge (TK) protection and whether the current legal framework is sufficient. Also included are student comments by Deidre Davis, and Benjamin Lockyer examining the recent controversy surrounding Hamilton’s Lin Manuel Miranda and how video gamers can use the Lanham Act to protect their games from clones.
