Top Intellectual Property Developments of 2010

Introduction to the 2010 CCCC-IP Annual

Clancy Ratliff, University of Louisiana at Lafayette

Like every year in recent memory, 2010 presented new developments in intellectual property and copyright: new situations and updates to ongoing ones. This year’s Conference on College Composition Communication Intellectual Property Annual  — our sixth issue — features several articles that track ongoing matters, such as the Georgia State case, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and even the tricentennial of the Statute of Anne, which was the first copyright law. It also shows us interesting new cases such as the infringement of a food blogger’s copyright and its public aftermath and the appropriation of Hurricane Katrina survivors’ oral histories as “found poetry.” These articles are only some of the great work in this collection. On behalf of the CCCC Intellectual Property Committee, I hope you’ll read this year’s annual and come away from it more informed about some of the previous year’s additions to the intellectual property landscape.
