Although the impending dispute between Apple and the FBI regarding the now unlocked iPhone of the San Bernardino shooter has resolved, rest assured that more general issues of individual privacy and law enforcement are far from over. Our world is more flooded with information, much of it very personal and disseminated by us. Everything is connected. Everything is recording. All that data has to go somewhere. Search history, our GPS locations, our messages, emails, and texts -- its easier to list the items NOT found on our phones (and likely on a 3rd party's servers) than information found on those devices.

This new technology makes our lives easier, but consider how valuable that information could be to law enforcement. What's more, if you don't control the information, do you trust the 3rd party provider to stand up for your privacy? We predict a great deal of resources, court time, and litigation will be required to delineate and define the scope of privacy rights in the 21st century. Linked below is an article were the onboard computer system of a driver's car altered police that she likely committed a crime. Obviously, no one advocates breaking the law, but shouldn't we hope our "devices" don't give away our constitutional rights?

Today's submission in fun legal stories, the pencil, the patent and the US Supreme Court.

In March 1858, Hymen Lipman filed a patent with the USPTO for a pencil, as as he termed it, "The combination of the lead an inda-rubber or other erasing substance in the old of a drawing-pencil, the Whole being constructed and arranged substantially in the matter and for the purposes set forth." Patent US19783

The "pencil" patent was later invalidated by the US Supreme Court in its decision of Reckendorfer v Faber, 92 US 347 (1875) because the court found that neither the pencil or the eraser were novel inventions, and merely combining them did not meet the requirements of a patent.

Even we #lawyers would all agree that today is a great day of spring #Owrnsboro. Only way it could be better would be to bookend some Kentucky or Louisville basketball around outdoor activities.
