CMLP ANNOUNCEMENT: Amicus Brief Filed Regarding Intersection of Trademark Law & Freedom of Speech

On January 18, 2012, the Citizen Media Law Project (under its new name, the Digital Media Law Project -- new website coming soon) filed an amicus brief in the Massachusetts Appeals Court in Jenzabar, Inc. v. Long Bow Group, Inc., No. 2011-P-1533. 

The CMLP  submitted its friend of the court brief to urge the Appeals Court to uphold several fundamental legal principles, including protecting critical speech online and preventing the misuse of trademark law in a distinctly non-trademark context to impede the free flow of information.

More information about the case and the amicus brief is available on the Berkman Center website.
