A reprise on the copyright implications of tattoos on athletes and depictions of athletes in sport-related video games. “Tattoo Artists Have Designs on Athletes’ Ink,” Wall Street Journal, June 17, 2014 A1 http://on.wsj.com/1uAjd81 Who owns the rights to the tattoo? Are you unknowingly infringing copyrights?

Lying about political candidates? Supreme Court says activist groups have standing to sue to challenge laws that prohibit false statements. So, even allegedly false “political” speech (as long as it’s not falsely shouting “fire”) is protected. “Challenge to False-Speech Ban Is Revived,” Wall Street Journal, June 17, 2014 A5 http://on.wsj.com/1naeGVR Trying to govern political speech is a problem in the US.

Email trips up Morgan Stanley. “Allergan’s Bitter Pill for Morgan Stanley,” Wall Street Journal, June 17, 2014 C1 http://on.wsj.com/1jvLJCv Morgan Stanley, who’s representing a takeover bidder for Allergan, apparently wrote an email saying that its current client is “a house of cards.” Embarrassing. Isn’t one of the rules “Don’t write stuff you don’t want to see on page [C1] of the Wall Street Journal”? Is that in GM’s 69 words?
