Professor Marketa Trimble Writes Guest Blog Post

Marketa Trimble is the Samuel Lionel Intellectual Property Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

On Dec. 6, Professor Trimble wrote a guest post titled "Server Location, Jurisdiction, and Server Location Requirements" for the Technology & Marketing Law Blog.

In her post, she writes, "At the recent 'Law, Borders, and Speech' conference at Stanford, several participants debated the relevance of server location in determining jurisdiction. Some Silicon Valley attorneys at the conference argued that the location of a server should not be just one of the factors in a jurisdictional inquiry, but that it should be the determinative factor for jurisdiction. ... Does it make sense for internet companies (ISPs, content providers, etc.) to take this position?"

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