Professor Trimble Guest Blogs on Eric Goldman's Technology & Marketing Law Blog

The Boyd School of Law is very pleased to announce that Professor Marketa Trimble guest blogged on Eric Goldman's Technology & Marketing Law Blog on February 13, 2013.

Titled "Territorial Implications of Antigua's Internet-Based IP Sanctions Against the US," Professor Trimble's guest blog post offers three reasons why the recent decision by the World Trade Organization (WTO) authorizing Antigua to suspend its intellectual property obligations towards the United States in retaliation for the United States' breach of WTO rules is notable. First, the Antigua story shows the inherent danger that exists when intellectual property issues are included in general trade negotiations and trade treaties, such as the WTO negotiations and the TRIPS Agreement. Second, the story exposes the problems that arise when a country attempts to design sanctions on the Internet against another country in such a way that the sanctions will both target intellectual property and remain territorially limited. Third, the story highlights the problem of evasion of geolocation and filtering measures. To read Professor Trimble's complete guest blog post, click here.
