Topic in search of an author

Earlier this week, a blogpost by Miri Frankel on the IPKat weblog ("Who owns a family's history? Revlon scraps with the Borgheses", here) reviewed an ongoing dispute over control over the name and indeed the family history of one of Europe's best-known families, the Borgheses.

JIPLP is looking for an author for an article that would look at the concept of "family history" as a protectable item of intellectual property law and that would review the sort of clauses which licensors or licensees might be advised to consider when seeking to monetise or commercially exploit this unusual asset.

If you think you might be a suitable author of an article on this topic, please email JIPLP's Commissioning Editor Sarah Harris here and let her know.
