Legal Links – August 7, 2015

August 7, 2015

On Fridays, we compile and post Legal Links, a list of legal news, reported cases, community events and topics of interest to Lancaster residents and readers of the Lancaster Law Blog.

1.  Katy Perry and the Law. Katy Perry is no stranger to the spotlight – she’s a firework for crying out loud! – first there was Left Shark, and this week, a graffiti artist claimed that Perry’s gown from the 2015 Met Gala infringes on his rights.

This case brings up some interesting legal issues relating to copyright and graffiti, explored by the WSJ law blog here.  We’re still trying to decide why she said yes to that dress.

2.  Lancaster: Tech Hub. Earlier this week, we attended Lancaster Chamber of Commerce & Industry event called “Tech Talks,” held at the unconventionally awesome offices of Nxtbook Media. Several Lancaster-based entrepreneurs and business owners spoke about the importance of technology as an industry for Lancaster County’s future and what we can all do to help.

If you missed it, check out Heather Stauffer of LNP’s coverage here, which includes a link to the full video of the event.

3.  The Pig is Oinking. The Pig. Is Oinking. Welcome back to Harvey’s Bar-B-Q, one of our favorite places to eat in Lancaster County. Harvey’s had been closed due to a fire since last summer. Lancaster Online discussed the restaurant’s expansion and the importance of a business disaster plan here.

4.  Law Review – Public  Service Announcement. The Lancaster County Law Library, located at 50 North Duke Street in Lancaster City, will be closed next week from August 10 to August 14 for installation of new carpet.

Not to worry, though! The staff will be working during the installation and will be able to assist with reference questions via phone at 717-299-8090.

It’s going to be a great night for First Friday in Lancaster. If you haven’t taken the time to enjoy this event this summer, you do not want to miss it.  Billed as an “arts extravaganza” it is that and so much more.  Art, great food, unique performances, shopping, family activities and spending time with friends and colleagues on a beautiful summer evening – there is something for everyone.
