Current Law Students / Re: Was the war in Iraq a war of choice?

I too should go to bed... but am in a posting frenzy - so here goes. 

Simply said: Killing people is wrong and should be avoided at all costs.  And I believe our killing tens of thousands of Iraqi's was avoidable.  We are headed down a track, for better or worse, of forced global homogenization.  We believe in democracy, freedom, and human rights and are forcing other nations to assimilate.  Could we have done it any other way.  I'm not sure.  Should we do it at all??????????  maybe..??  I mean, are countries that don't share these values a threat to us?  To be honest.  I kindof think so.  But it's kindof crazy to say we are declaring war (i.e. killing people) to ensure human rights.  Go back to top.  Hrmmmmmmm

Another nice message :D  That's great to here... and I hope to definitely get into the field as soon as possible.  A lot of my friends are working on doctorate thesis' or are artists and I know that they all have trouble getting things copyrighted/published, etc.  So I'm personally interested in that type of pro bono work.  One other thing - I read on at xoxo.  Most of those guys are actually total sexist, bigoted jerks.  I could never have imagined that people could make jokes about rape and about being "dark enough" to get flown in to schools for interviews. Crazy!!  I posted a "reality check" and hope I don't have too much to do with such clowns while at law school or as a lawyer.  Sorry for the negativity but those xoxo posts really threw me for a spin!

He did! What a nice guy?!?  Everyone always talks about what bastards lawyers are.. and I like completely disagree.  I've been reading the law boards at lawschooldiscussion, xoxo, and vault and except for the random, unfunny, offensive "jokes" everyone seems pretty cool, and helpful.  Anyways... thanks for giving me that contact info.  He said that I could call him - and I will.

Thanks!  Sooo, if I wanted to do in house counsel at a publishing house, etc., would Tulane not be the best school to go to?? (I've been waitlisted at both Cardozo and Brooklyn Law and accepted at St. Johns and New York Law School - all in NYC where most publishing houses are).  Should I wait to go to one of these lower ranked schools?  I am pretty certain that I want to live and work in NYC. 

Also - is this whole copyright thing a risky bet?  Should I have a definite strong plan B?  As I've heard that copyright is a very competitive field...


Thanks again for any insight.  You guys rock!!

Current Law Students / copyright law as career choice

I'm starting this fall at Tulane and am thinking about pursuing a career in copyright law.  I don't have a background in any science (but economics, and german) and get the feeling that a lot of IP work in general is done by patent lawyers.  My question is - do I have to pass the patent bar in order to have a good chance of working as a copyright lawyer?  Is most IP law dominated by science-background-having JD's??  Any input would be appreciated.
