There are, I am sure, journals that follow developments in intellectual property law. I don’t, as a general rule. And I may give short shrift to the intellectual property components of information governance and information management, which is a shame, because IP is a great example. Clearly, that information has value and corporations take steps to protect that value. I hadn’t given a lot of thought to whether States and cities trademarked their slogans. Apparently, several (e.g., New York, Las Vegas, and Colorado) do. Here’s a blog post (I don’t endorse the blog, just mention it in passing) http://bit.ly/1eCAo6b .
The headline of this post sort of kind of comes from “These Boots Were Made for Walking,” by Nancy Sinatra. Written by Lee Hazlewood. It seemed to fit.
