Foley Hoag Attorneys to Screen Provocative, Academy Award-Winning LOGORAMA Film and Lead Discussion of Copyright and Trademark Fair Use Issues

Honestly, who hasn’t fantasized at some point about Ronald McDonald grabbing an Uzi and slaughtering his way through corporate America?  LOGORAMA, the Academy Award-winning animated short, involves a gritty police chase set in a Los Angeles-inspired cityscape entirely populated by over 2,500 contemporary and historical trademarks and logos.  We couldn’t let this provocative and fascinating film pass completely without notice in the legal community.

On June 25, 2012, at 4:00 PM, the Boston Bar Association will present a special screening of the 16-minute film, with the kind permission of distributor Shorts International.  Following the screening, Foley Hoag attorneys Dave Kluft and Jenevieve Maerker (both frequent contributors to this blog) will lead a discussion about trademark fair use, the copyrighting of fictional characters and other IP issues raised by the film.
You can register to attend the event on the BBA website.  We hope to see you there.
