    Professor Ed Lee has posted a new article to SSRN titled "Digital Originality." The article appeared in this summer's edition of the Vanderbilt Journal of Entertainment and Technology Law. Here is the abstract:

    "This Article examines the doctrine of originality in U.S. copyright law and proposes a reconfigured, three-part test that can better analyze issues of first impression involving works created with new digital technologies. The proposed test, encapsulated by the concept of digital originality, provides much needed guidance to courts to address the increasing complexities of digital creations in the twenty-first century."
