The birth of a baby is one of the happiest days in parents’ lives. But if the child’s mother and father are not married, it can cloud the situation legally. In the case of married parents, the husband automatically is considered to be the father of a child born during the marriage.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. With the birth (and upcoming christening) of Prince George Alexander Louis, the line of succession for the British monarchy extends to a fourth generation. The Prince of Cambridge is now third in line to the throne after his grandfather, Prince Charles, and his father, Prince William. He booted his Uncle Harry to fourth. What could have been groundbreaking—but wasn’t—was a change in the law of succession passed by Parliament in 2011 that guaranteed that the first child of Prince William would become the ruling (regent) king or queen: This child was going to be third in line to the throne regardless of sex. The difference is, under the old law, had this baby been a girl, she could have been surpassed in the line of succession by a later-born brother. Since George is a boy, he’s third under either law—and will stay so—thus, things stay the same this time. Interestingly, primogeniture, or the practice of the oldest male inheriting a nobleman’s entire estate, continues for dukes and earls and other landed gentry.

The Coca-Cola formula. The Nike swoosh. The NBC chimes. Intellectual property (IP) is all around us. And the law can protect it through patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, trade dress and right to publicity. But as the nation moves toward an information economy—where information is an intangible asset—the ever-expanding IP field is becoming more vulnerable. “Because of the Internet, it is so easy to obtain other’s IP,” notes Emmett McAuliffe of Riezman Berger.

In the post-9/11 decade, filmmakers have tried with limited success to capture every aspect of the war on terror. We have seen OK movies about terror cells, deployed soldiers, extremist recruiting, Seal team Six, homegrown terrorists, Bin Laden, government conspiracy and post-traumatic stress. Here we have a movie about a terror attack and subsequent government cover-up. Correction: here we have yet another movie about a terror attack and subsequent government cover-up.
Story: A century ago, 13-year-old factory worker Mary Phagan was murdered at the National Pencil Company in Atlanta during the annual parade honoring Confederate veterans of the Civil War.
