Squeal! New Copyright Assignment!

The case on which I first investigated the kinds of damages a copyright plaintiff can claim is rolling along, and now I am investigating the definition of "author" for purposes of Copyright Law.

And I am very excited.

I am SUCH a geek.

Since I know those individuals with whom I am currently duking it out over whether copyright law includes fanfiction will be interested, I shall post any relevant findings.

(Heads off to dive into my beloved Nimmer.)

(btw, have you read EB White's The Trumpet of the Swan?)
