The IP Breakdown is a blog by Tara Aaron and Rick Sanders of Aaron | Sanders Law about copyright (Rick’s great love), trademark (Tara’s main thing), trade secrets, rights of publicity, online privacy, related internet laws (like the Stored Communications Act), and even a bit about patents. We keep our colleagues updated on emerging and trending IP issues and give our clients takeaways for their daily business lives. Rick and Tara break down the complex IP issues, or make sense of what happened when the cases fall apart on their own or, as sometimes happens, just blow themselves up. We come from different IP backgrounds—Tara started on Music Row, Rick in Silicon Valley—so don’t expect our viewpoints to match. But we think that’s part of the fun, and we try hard to make our posts fun and easy to read. Let us know if we’re succeeding!
