The GoldieBlox / Beastie Boys fight may not be over quite yet. The Beastie Boys answered GoldieBlox's declaratory judgment complaint yesterday and counterclaimed for copyright and trademark infringement. If it doesn't settle, I think GoldieBlox will win on fair use grounds (with the trademark claims falling with the copyright claim), but it'll be a fun battle for IP lawyers to watch!

Good article on today's two U.S. Supreme Court decisions about fee-shifting (awards of attorney fees) in "exceptional" patent cases. Links to both opinions in the article.
Summary: The Supreme Court issued yet another rebuke to the country’s patent court judges in two decisions that could make it easier to punish patent trolls.

Last Friday I attended a great Bitcoin 101 presentation hosted by Techbase10 and the guys at 212ths. In this post, I try to expand a bit on how the law currently is applied to entrepreneurial businesses seeking to innovate with Bitcoin.
