During the fall 2022 semester, Associate Professor of Law Tim McFarlin presented on his latest article, “A Copyright Restored: Mark Twain, Mary Ann Cord, and How to Right a Longstanding Wrong” at the Intellectual Property Mosaic Conference and Texas A&M Intellectual Property Scholars Roundtable.
McFarlin said, “Both conferences were wonderful. It’s always fun engaging with others’ cutting-edge scholarship, and I received very useful feedback on my article. People are really interested in discussing this case of Cord and Twain and its broader implications for the law.”
In addition, “A Copyright Restored” was previously accepted by the Wisconsin Law Review and will be published in 2023.
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.
