IP is All Around Us Video Series
The "IP Is All Around Us" series highlights patent, trademark, copyright, and other intellectual property in real life situations. Each video in the series features a group of young lawyers who visit different venues to identify, explain, and explore how intellectual property affects and shapes their daily lives. The five current videos feature:
- The laboratories of Eli Lilly's ImClone Systems;
- Historical archives of AT&T;
- The stadium of the New York Red Bulls soccer team;
- The cellars of City Winery in New York City; and
- The home of Julie Gold, Grammy-award winning songwriter of "From A Distance" (as performed by Bette Midler).
We encourage you to share these videos in the classroom or for CLE purposes. The videos serve as starting points in a continuing conversation about why intellectual property exists, what function intellectual property serves, and when intellectual property benefits rights holders and the public.
These videos serve as a concise basis for a more detailed conversation between lawyers and clients, colleagues, students, and the public about the value of IP rights. These videos also provide a great introduction to a longer presentation on a substantive IP issue to university students or CLE audiences. Each video covers at least one aspect of IP law and most them cover multiple concepts, including: copyrights, trademarks, patents, and trade secrets. The videos provide a common vocabulary that can be further developed during in-person conversations.
