The Evil Twins Debating

The University of Richmond School of Law's Seventh Annual "Evil Twins Debate" was held on November 15, 2013.  Professor Mark Janis of the Indiana University Maurer School of Law and I (Professor Andrew Torrance of the University of Kansas School of Law) debated the topic "Design Patents: Great Idea, or Greatest Idea?"  For the sake of argument, I represented the Greatest Idea position while Mark argued in favor of the Great Idea side.  Here is the video of the Evil Twins Debate on the University of Richmond School of Law YouTube channel:
Intellectual property experts, Professor Jim Gibson and Professor Chris Cotropia, deserve immense credit for making the Evil Twins Debate the wonderful institution it has become.  Thanks very much, Jim and Chris, for inviting me to be a 2013 Evil Twin.
