Coming Soon…

My last update was September 26, but I promise the delay was for good reason. On September 28 I became a father. (She’s asleep on my chest while I lay on the couch and write this). While she came a week before we thought she would, my wife and I are ecstatic. The feeling itself is indescribable and each day I wake up (exhausted) excited for what’s next.

I do hope to have some new items in the (relatively) near future. I believe those topics will include Fox News v. TVEyes, droit de suite and the American Royalties Too Act of 2014, and a look at how the interests of a work’s traditional author may divert (or conflict) from its statutory author. However, the joys and rigors of parenting may slow down my usual process.

So please stay tuned. In the meantime, feel free to follow me on Twitter – @copyistculture.

It’s been a goal of mine for a while to start a blog and write about topics that I find interesting. Lucky for me, the things I find interesting (copyright law, film, television, comics – essentially nerd culture) are now interesting apparently. While I think (hope) that I will write some lengthier legal-based pieces on topics, I’ll mix it up with some breezier posts (like what I carved for Halloween this year or crafts that hopefully are fair use) from time to time.

Feel free to contact me if you want to chat or submit a guest post. I keep a pretty low social media profile, but I do lurk around the Bleeding Cool forums and Conquer Club.
