Associate Professor Marketa Trimble Writes Article for Technology & Marketing Law Blog

Marketa Trimble is Associate Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On Jan. 27, she wrote an article for the Technology & Marketing Law Blog titled The Sochi Olympics and European Answers to Cross-Border Copyright Questions.

"With the Sochi Winter Olympic Games approaching, it is time again to follow one of the unofficial Olympic “sports” – the evasion of geolocation. Internet users around the globe will be bypassing websites’ geoblocking capabilities to access internet content that is territorially limited and therefore otherwise inaccessible in their physical location," her blog post reads. "Users typically encounter territorial limitations on Olympic content because the content is licensed per country or region and content providers limit access to the licensed content to users connecting from those particular countries or regions."

In her research, Professor Trimble focuses on intellectual property and issues at the intersection of intellectual property and private international law/conflict of laws.
