A Montgomery business attorney, Amanda Beshears Cook, has recently published an article in the prestigious and highly esteemed Chicago Kent Journal of Intellectual Property, Spring 2013 Edition, Volume 12 Issue 1. Chicago-Kent is well known and highly ranked for its Intellectual Property program. The article,entitled "Copyright and the Freedom of Expression", touches on the development of Copyright Law, and current problems that cause Copyright Law to interfere with Free Speech.
“It is an honor for my article to be chosen by such a prestigious journal. This article is important because it defends our right to freedom of speech both in person and on the internet, and shows both Congress and our courts how important it is to protect this freedom,” says Ms. Cook. "And I cannot thank Andy Olree, professor of Constitutional Law at Faulkner University, enough for all of his aid and encouragement."
