Monday smile – Can (Klingon) language be copyrighted?

If you have managed to miss the media frenzy, you might be interested in the case of Paramount v Axanar, in which several areas of infringement are discussed, but in particular the use of the Klingon language. 🙂

Rather than say any more, I shall point you in the direction of TechnoLlama, aka Dr AndrĂ©s Guadamuz, Senior Lecturer in Intellectual Property Law and an international consultant for the World Intellectual Property Organization. His comprehensive post “Can you copyright the Klingon Language?” can be found here.
