Remember that business about a student suing the architect of the new Freedom Tower on the World Trade Centre site? Brian Micklethwaite comments here, and very interesting it is, too.

While on the intellectual property front, interested readers might wish to note that Marvel Comics (creators of Spider-man, the Hulk, the X-Men and Daredevil) are suing the companies behind the online game City of Heroes, on the basis that the game can be used to recreate their characters, despite the fact that doing so is against the game’s terms and conditions. Students might want to discuss the possibility of Marvel extending its efforts to manufacturers of pen and paper, for example.
