                          • Intellectual Property: Licensing of Copyrighted Work for Tattoo Studios

                            It would be interesting to follow the work of a painter or other graphic artist from the initial copyright filing and publication of a work of art to the individual licensing and reproduction of it by tattoo artists. How to make the work available to the tattoo artist and how to keep track of and collect royalties every time the image is reproduced is an interesting challenge.

It would be useful to compare our present laws with those of Great Britain, particularly regarding primates kept as pets and the Netherlands which has a primate sanctuary, Apenhuel, that could be a model for other jurisdictions.

                                      • Criminal Procedure II (The Courtroom/Adjudications)

                                        The current criminal procedure lessons on the website are great for Criminal Procedure I (The Police/Investigations), but the later criminal procedure materials would be helpful to those interested in pursuing criminal law.
