Disclosure – Kenny Crews taught my Intellectual Property & Copyright courses back in law school. Therefore, I’d have to hold him at least partially responsible for my career in intellectual property law.  He’s an enthusiastic and engaging speaker.  I look forward to seeing the results of his study.
