Lawsuit: 3 Conan O'Brien jokes possibly pilfered from blogger

"The most surprising thing to me about this lawsuit is that it was filed in the first place," comments a law professor about the recent allegations that a number of jokes appeared on the "Conan" show after already appearing on a comedy writer's blog. "When you're talking about accusations of infringement dealing with fairly low-dollar-value creative work, we don't see a lot of litigation."

Court: Uber knew, or should have, of co-opted Waymo trade secrets

When Uber hired a former engineer from Waymo, Google's self-driving car unit, did it know he was illegally sharing trade secrets with them? A federal judge has ruled they did -- or a reasonable company would have. He has ordered the confidential files to be returned to Waymo, although he didn't completely shut down Uber's own autonomous vehicle program. He did, however, refer the case to the Department of Justice for an investigation into possible trade secret theft.

Does the Register of Copyrights bill politicize a critical job?

The House of Representatives just voted 378 to 48 to pass H.R. 1695, the Register of Copyrights Selection and Accountability Act of 2017, which makes the U.S. Register of Copyrights a presidential appointee requiring confirmation by Congress. Proponents argue that the change merely reflects the increasing centrality of copyrights in the Internet Age. Opponents of the bill say it does no such thing and vow to fight it before the Senate.
