Week in IP: December 15 – 21

By the third week of December, things should be winding down. The week had a few news stories in relation to copyrights and patents. Some bootleg Beatles songs were released officially for the sake of copyright protection, Chevron pointed out illegitimate takedowns of their material regarding the case in Ecuador, and Samsung filed a patent for a dual screen smartphone. The following are intellectual property stories organized by day starting on the sixteenth of December.
