Just Start Blogging Already (4/30/2019) - Here’s a secret: I hate(d) blogging.

Also, happy Crazy Taxi patent expiration day! If you’re a millennial like me, you’re probably familiar with the Sega arcade game, “Crazy Taxi.” (arcade release in 1999) And…if you were suffering through high school a few years later, I bet you know of that classic Crazy ...

Fixin’ To Dance (4/9/2019) - You may have heard that copyright exists in a work as soon as it is created. And you saw a lawyer twitch when you said that. It’s because we want to correct you, but also we don’t want to spoil the cocktail party and get kicked out before the bacon wrapped appetizers arrive. First, whatever ... Read more
I’ve Got a Proposal for You (4/2/2019) - Actually, I have two. Or, to be more precise, Department of Revenue has two for you.

(Comment Period Closes April 10, 2019) Proposal 2: Fact Sheet 3112: Winery and Class “B” Beer License (Comment Period Closes April 16, 2019) In ... Read more
A Hard Lesson in Trade Secrets (3/26/2019) - Full Disclosure: If you want to read the source article that gave rise to this post, you can do so here: https://www.cnbc.com/2019/03/23/how-sex-drug-promescent-sparked-a-150-million-legal-battle.html. I would categorize it as “kinda-NSFW,” but probably not something you want to have up on your screen should your boss be doing laps around the office. Under Wis. Stat. Sec. 134.90(c), a “trade ...

Representing: You? (3/19/2019) - In our engagement letter, we have some very important language.
