Copyright & Modding In The Modern Gamespace, Josephine Railston May 2024

Copyright & Modding In The Modern Gamespace, Josephine Railston

Student Scholar Symposium Abstracts and Posters

In the modern gamespace, modding has become an excellent opportunity for video game enthusiasts to express their creativity and love for a game; but what happens when that passion is stifled by a major company? My poster presentation will examine the ethics behind modding and ROM hacking, from both the perspectives of major video game corporations as well as their fanbase at large. We will analyze this issue using the case study of Pokémon Prism, a Pokémon Crystal ROM hack, which was canceled days prior to its release following a cease and desist by Nintendo. More specifically, we will investigate …


Downstreaming, Rachel Landy Apr 2024

Downstreaming, Rachel Landy

Articles

Spotify and its competitors all offer the same product at the same price. Why? Scholars have argued that relationships can be designed in a way that naturally promotes innovation. By “braiding” certain formal contracting practices with informal enforcement norms, parties develop a frame-work that supports trust and positive, long-term collaboration. This Article takes on this consensus and shows that not all braiding is good. Using the multibillion-dollar subscription music streaming business as an illustration, it demonstrates just how industry forces can, and do, overcome braiding’s positive slant. In that industry, the major record labels (Universal, Warner, and Sony) weaponize braiding …


Calculating The Harms Of Political Use Of Popular Music, Jake Linford, Aaron Perzanowski Feb 2024

Calculating The Harms Of Political Use Of Popular Music, Jake Linford, Aaron Perzanowski

Articles

When Donald Trump descended the escalator of Trump Tower to announce his 2016 presidential bid, Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World” blared from the loudspeakers. Almost immediately, Young’s management made clear that the campaign’s use of the song was unauthorized. Neil Young was not alone. Trump drew similar objections from dozens of artists during his first two presidential bids. But as a matter of copyright law, it is unclear whether artists can prevent their songs from being played at campaign rallies.


The New Gender Panic In Sport: Why State Laws Banning Transgender Athletes Are Unconstitutional, Deborah Brake Jan 2024

The New Gender Panic In Sport: Why State Laws Banning Transgender Athletes Are Unconstitutional, Deborah Brake

Articles

The scope and pace of legislative activity targeting transgender individuals is nothing short of a gender panic. From restrictions on medical care to the regulation of library books and the use of pronouns in schools, attacks on the transgender community have reached crisis proportions. A growing number of families with transgender children are being forced to leave their states of residence to keep their children healthy and their families safe and intact. The breadth and pace of these developments is striking. Although the anti-transgender backlash now extends broadly into health and family governance, sport was one of the first settings—the …


The Ncaa's Challenge In Determining Nil Market Value, Meg Penrose Jan 2024

The Ncaa's Challenge In Determining Nil Market Value, Meg Penrose

Faculty Scholarship

This Article proceeds in three parts. Part II discusses the changes that NIL has wrought in college athletics. It briefly explains collectives and their impact on NIL. Part III discusses the impossibility of limiting athletes’ “fair market value” given market value depends on what the market is willing to pay. Congress has failed to pass national legislation. Yet the mosaic of state laws is simply unfit to stand in for national legislation. And, following multiple litigation losses, the NCAA cannot be trusted to “value” the athletes themselves. Market value, if one is to be established, must be uniform and assessed …

The Economics Of Medical Patents And The U.S. Government’S Role In Drug Price Negotiations, Eddie Halwani Oct 2023

The Economics Of Medical Patents And The U.S. Government’S Role In Drug Price Negotiations, Eddie Halwani

AELJ Blog

The U.S. government’s recent but unusual push to negotiate drug prices has struck a chord with many Americans, with polls showing a significant, bipartisan majority favoring the action.This action presents an opportunity to appreciate medical patents’ role in spurring innovation forward. Amid changing policies, medical patents shape the accessibility and affordability of care through their impact on drug pricing. Drug prices in the United States are notably high—about 2.4 times those in other developed countries.

The Aftermath Of Murphy V. Ncaa: State And Congressional Reactions To Leaving Sports Gambling Regulation To The States, Ethan Mordekhai Oct 2023

The Aftermath Of Murphy V. Ncaa: State And Congressional Reactions To Leaving Sports Gambling Regulation To The States, Ethan Mordekhai

AELJ Blog

In 2018, the Supreme Court ruled in Murphy v. NCAA that the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992 (“PAPSA”) violated the anti-commandeering rule and was therefore unconstitutional. PAPSA had effectively barred states from authorizing sports gambling. The act did not make sports gambling a federal crime, however it did allow professional sports organizations to bring civil actions to enjoin violations. Thus, after the New Jersey legislature authorized sports gambling in 2012, the NCAA brought a federal action to enjoin the law on the ground that it violated PAPSA. The case made its way to the Supreme Court, and …


I Can’T Believe It’S Not Skittles! Broad Summary Of Advertising And Packaging Regulations For Cannabis Dispensaries In New York State, Lauren Woods Oct 2023

I Can’T Believe It’S Not Skittles! Broad Summary Of Advertising And Packaging Regulations For Cannabis Dispensaries In New York State, Lauren Woods

AELJ Blog

Newly passed legislation often represents the changing nature of public opinion and societal attitudes. In New York State, for example, the general public’s softening and more accepting view of marijuana consumption was highlighted when the state approved legal marijuana use in a medical setting in 2014. Seven years later, New York State passed the Marihuana Regulation & Taxation Act (“MTRA”) and officially legalized “the possession of adult-use recreational cannabis for all adults over the age twenty-one.” A highlight of the act is how it addresses how the current state of cannabis regulation in the state is suboptimal, and how its …


What Happens When The Public Wants To Remove Public Art? The Second Circuit Weighs In On One Recent Vara Case, Paige Green Oct 2023

What Happens When The Public Wants To Remove Public Art? The Second Circuit Weighs In On One Recent Vara Case, Paige Green

AELJ Blog

n 1990, the Visual Artists’ Rights Act (VARA) became a welcome addition to the federal Copyright Act of 1976. VARA was the first time the “moral rights” of an artist were federally protected in the United States. Moral rights are commonly understood to provide attribution to artists and protect the integrity of visual art pieces. Under VARA, this means authors have a right to claim authorship on pieces they create, prevent the use of their name on a work they did not create, and prohibit the destruction of works of “recognized statute” (both intentional and through gross negligence). The law …

Utility, Copyright, And Fair Use After Warhol, Keith N. Hylton Sep 2023

Utility, Copyright, And Fair Use After Warhol, Keith N. Hylton

Faculty Scholarship

This paper is a reaction to AWF v. Goldsmith (Warhol), which finds that Warhol’s adaptation of a photograph of Prince, taken by photographer Lynn Goldsmith, is not protected from copyright liability by the fair use defense. The Warhol dissent accuses the majority of being overly concerned with the commercial character of Warhol’s use, while the dissent emphasizes the artistically transformative quality of Warhol’s adaptation. These different approaches provide strong evidence that the theory of fair use remains unclear to the Court. There is a need for a simple positive theory of the fair use doctrine. That need was largely …

Promoting Female Sporting Opportunities Without Title Ix: The Spanish Experience, Stephen Ross, Maria Josefa Garcia Cirac Jan 2023

Promoting Female Sporting Opportunities Without Title Ix: The Spanish Experience, Stephen Ross, Maria Josefa Garcia Cirac

Journal Articles

This article compares the American approach to improving sporting opportunities for females – Title IX – with approaches taken by Spain. Because of the singular American dedication to elite interscholastic and intercollegiate sports, Title IX’s requirement of equal treatment requires that elite female athletes have equivalent opportunities to elite male athletes. The Spanish approach looks instead on the social benefits of athletics participation for boys, men, girls, and women.


Title Ix's Trans Panic, Deborah L. Brake Jan 2023

Title Ix's Trans Panic, Deborah L. Brake

Articles

Sport is an agent of social change, but that change does not always track in a progressive direction. Sport can be a site for contesting and reversing the gains of progressive social movements as much as furthering the values of equality and justice for historically marginalized groups. This dynamic of contestation and reversal is now playing out in a new wave of anti-transgender backlash that has gained adherents among some proponents of equal athletic opportunities for girls and women. In this latest twist in the debate over who deserves the opportunity to compete, the sex-separate athletic programming permitted by Title …

Glorification Of Serial Killers: How The Law Fails To Protect Families Of The Victims, Ksenia Khlystova-Gowda Nov 2022

Glorification Of Serial Killers: How The Law Fails To Protect Families Of The Victims, Ksenia Khlystova-Gowda

AELJ Blog

Serial killers have always caused controversy. They have been talked about, feared, studied, and after their deaths, they have been remembered and memorialized in various forms of art. In pursuit of success and fame, movie and documentary directors attempt to promote their own narratives while depicting the gruesome and hideous murders and crimes of these killers. However, it appears that few consider the pain and suffering these “art forms” cause the families of serial killer victims. Almost every year, there are new media productions that put serial killers in the spotlight and depict their victims as sacrificial plot elements that …
