Staff Editor Max Isaacs (’17) Examines the Use of Expert Testimony in Music Copyright Cases in Intellectual Property Magazine

In the September 2015 issue of Intellectual Property Magazine, Staff Editor Max Isaacs (’17) (with co-author David Munkittrick) explores the disconnect between courts’ reliance on expert musicologists in music copyright cases and application of the “lay listener” test, which “leaves it to the fact-finder’s ears to determine musical similarity.” Munkittrick and Issacs argue that expert testimony serves an important role in analyzing “technical musical elements,” but it “cannot completely displace the lay listener” test.

Congratulations to Articles Editor Jack Millman, Class of 2016, for publishing with the Ohio State University Law Review Online

Congratulations to Articles Editor Jack Millman, Class of 2016, for publishing his piece, Gambling with Health Care, with the Ohio State University Law Review Online! Millman explores how low-income individuals could inflate their adjusted gross income using estimated gambling returns in order to qualify for Affordable Care Act subsidies in states opting against the Medicare expansion. In doing so, this novel analysis highlights the difficult position in which many low-income taxpayers find themselves and emphasizes the need for Congress to act. Download his article here.
