Professor Marketa Trimble's Article Published in Fordham Intellectual Property, Media & Entertainment Law Journal

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

Professor Trimble's article, titled "The Multiplicity of Copyright Laws on the Internet," was recently published in the Fordham Intellectual Property, Media & Entertainment Law Journal, Volume XXV.

The article abstract reads, "This Article posits that the multiplicity of applicable national copyright laws on the Internet is not as significant a problem for law-abiding Internet actors as some commentators fear. What makes the multiplicity workable for Internet actors are the realities—or inefficiencies—of cross-border copyright enforcement that de facto limit the number of potentially applicable national copyright laws. This Article reviews the solutions that have been proposed to address the multiplicity problem and examines the objections to the proposals that have already been or could be raised. The Article then analyzes the current realities of copyright enforcement on the Internet and contrasts the realities with the anticipated workings of the proposed solutions."

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