Giuseppina D’Agostino is the Founder and Director of IP Osgoode, the Founder and Director of the new IP Intensive Program, and an Associate Professor at Osgoode Hall Law School.
The Twitter community has over 100 million active users and I am pleased to announce that we have joined those ranks. Follow IP Osgoode on Twitter @IPilogue.
At the core of our tweets will be our posts on the IPilogue, our blog on current hot topics in intellectual property law and technology. Our blogs have long reported on the Twitter phenomenon and its impact.
In the early days of tweeting, we had advice for victims of Twitter squatting in Twitter Squatters: What are you doing? Squatters have targeted corporations that own some of the biggest brands in the world: Coca-Cola and Nike.
We considered the role of Twitter in questions about election result reporting before polls closed across Canada. Read our post on Elections, Media and Breaking the Law.
We also examined the use of Twitter and other technology during the London riots in our post on London MP Seeks to Quell Rioting through Surveillance of BlackBerry Messages.
Our commentary on Twitter, social media and technology continues. And, when we tweet, we engage and collaborate with a rich community of Osgoode scholarly tweeters. Our colleagues who are making an impact on Twitter are showcased in our report on Blogging, Tweeting and the Next Generation of Scholarly Collaboration.
We hope you will follow us on Twitter, too!
