Lex Indicium The Law of Information


LEX INDICIUM was created to discuss, meditate upon, unpack and peruse the “law of information”—or more precisely, issues pertaining to the use of information, data, trademarks, copyrightable subject matter and other content in today’s online, hyper promoted, digitized and socialized world. The posts and conversations are intended for lay people and lawyers alike. We hope you will enjoy and be inspired to respond!
