In the latest installment of this popular series, Peter Afrasiabi sets his sights on James Bond to examine the convoluted litigation history that underlies this immensely popular, global motion picture franchise. Peter chronicles the key legal disputes that plagued the franchise for much of its storied history, and discusses the interesting and complex legal issues those disputes raised, including copyright infringement, contractual work-for-hire and assignment, fair use, satire, parody and trademark.
