Lawyers, Marketing, Olympics, AWR?

by Sarah Prosory 31. July 2012 15:47

Reading my RSS feeds, I came across an interesting topic, which is timely: lawyers and marketing at the Olympics. This one blog post, led me on a quick adventure (seriously like 5 minutes), and I ended up pondering- could someone use this topic for their AWR paper? Anyone? Bueller? Here's what happened:

First I saw this blog post and thought what an interesting job for a lawyer: Olympic Lawyers Shadow Torch's Every Move to Prevent 'Ambush Marketing' (Legal Blog Watch).

Later I saw another blog post on a related note, marketing at the Olympics... and breaking the rules? See, Headphone Maker Beats Marketing Rules at Olympics (CNET.com) followed by a friendly reminder: U.K. Olympic Athletes Banned From Wearing Beats (CNET.com).

Curious about this topic, I Googled "lawyers marketing olympics" and found a law journal article from 1996! See, 3 Vill. Sports & Ent. L.J. 423 (1996) Ambushing the Olympic Games; Davis, Robert N., This article is in the HeinOnline database, and from there I wondered if anyone has written on the subject of ambush marketing since 1996... so I used their ScholarCheck feature. This showed me that there were several articles written since then (2003, 2005), but perhaps an update to these articles is in order?

In summary, I used an RSS feed of legal blogs to give me current news, which sparked an interest in a topic, which got me to use the HeinOnline database to search law journal articles, which showed me that this topic is in need of another updated article! A great process to find a topic and begin your research for your AWR paper.

Accessibility to Electronic Resources Via QR Codes

What in the name of everything that

 

is legal are these odd looking

 

pictures all over my law library?!

These are signs containing QR codes which you can scan with a smart

phone or iPad.

 

Scanning these codes will link you directly to the electronic book's record

in the Library catalog.

 

All that is left to do is log into your library record and enjoy the

electronic book right there on your mobile device.

 

If you do not have a mobile device, you can still access these titles by

following the link printed below the QR code or searching the catalog by

title.

 

Are cases on Regional Reporters also available electroncially?  It seems

the library only has the Pacific Reporter as far as Regional Reporters.

Yes!  Those cases are conveniently available electronically through

Westlaw and Lexis.  If you are in the Library, you can scan these QR codes

and you will be linked to the Regional Reporters record on the catalog.

 

Have questions and do not want to walk all the way to the Circulation or

Reference areas?  Scan these barcodes and chat with a Librarian. 

Unfortunately, chat will not work on iProducts because you need Flash. 

Flash and iProducts just don't get along.

 

Let us get with the times.  Electronic Resources are here and now!!
