What happens when the celebrity of an internet meme is so closely associated with a celebrity as to be inextricably linked, for better or worse?  Is that a copyright?  A trademark?  What happens when someone makes a 3-D printout of the meme?  Let’s let the jury decide.  Come join the high school students and watch them deliberate the cutting edge of trademark and copyright law.

Anne Li and Ethan Simonowitz are two of the presenters at this event.
