Associate Professor of Law Tim McFarlin’s latest article, “A Copyright Restored: Mark Twain, Mary Ann Cord, and How to Right a Longstanding Wrong,” has been accepted for publication by the Wisconsin Law Review. The Review is the flagship scholarly journal of the University of Wisconsin Law School, with content spanning local, state, national, and international topics. “A Copyright Restored” will be published in the Review’s 2023 volume. It is a counterpart to McFarlin’s “A Copyright Ignored,” which was selected for publication this past spring and is forthcoming in the Journal of the Copyright Society of the U.S.A.
In addition, McFarlin was invited by the University of Houston Law Center to speak about both articles to its Intellectual Property Student Organization on Sept. 29, 2022, in a talk entitled “State-Law Copyright and Cold-Case Infringement.” McFarlin followed that talk with a presentation on Sept. 30 about the latest developments in copyright law at the 38th Annual Fall Institute on Intellectual Property Law in Galveston, Texas.
At Cumberland School of Law, McFarlin teaches courses relating to property and contract law; he specializes in intellectual property such as copyrights, trademarks and patents. In his scholarship, McFarlin has explored how the law intersects and interacts with the creative arts.
