A post at SLUniverse announces that attorney Frank Taney will be talking about “Trademarks for Virtual World Related Businesses” in Second Life on Friday, June 6 from 2:30 to 4 pm Pacific time at UBM Think Services’ home (SLURL).
From the post:
Frank will address a variety of topics sure to be of interest to Second Life residents, including the use of trademarks to build value in a virtual world brand, Linden Lab’s trademark policy, proper use of trademarks, and avoidance of trademark infringement.
Frank, a partner at Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney, represented Eros LLC and other content creators in two “avatar v. avatar” cases last fall, and has a number of other virtual world clients. He did a Q&A earlier this year on intellectual property issues that was well attended and informative, and this promises to be a good session.
