Blurred Lines and Taxes

We've written here lately about copyright infringement litigation and pointed you to a number of entertainment news sources for background. Did you, like me, get overeager perusing online newspapers for more information and run into a pay wall telling you you'd reached your reading limit for the month?

Good news! Those affiliated with OSU or using a computer terminal here on campus can often access many of these newspapers online for free. Many of these are available for free through the Columbus Metropolitan Library as well (under their site tabs for Research or Services). All you need is a library card.

Should you not go the free route, however, don't forget that if you're a practicing entertainment lawyer, you may be able to deduct certain business expenses, including subscriptions to entertainment news sources such as the L.A. Times and Variety.
