Chicago 2005 Highlights

Excellent latte at Metropolis Coffee Company near Loyola University. Hypothetical for any law students reading this: could this design be protected by copyright?

    Kind of silly to associate a device that is meant to kill people with ‘the life’, more like ‘the death’…

    Tinus: I have no idea what you are talking about.

    Oh, now I do. It’s in the first of the Chicago Chinatown photographs, at the right. It all makes sense.

    ianal(nor student), but I do my best at creating my own latte art; Especially given the skill, training and practice a good rosetta takes, it has to fall under the genus of Original Work, and thus copyrighted by default. How much of that is transferred to you when you buy the medium is an ongoing debate in other circles. But when you take your first sip, dragging that wonderful leaf in untold directions, you create an unlicensed derrivative all of your own! It’s all just testament to how lawyers can ruin a great experience – aren’t we glad the SCAA is nothing like the other *AA’s :)
