Professor Greg Lastowka (1969-2015) will be remembered for his inquiry into how people innovate, create, and produce cultural capital through playful exploration. His pathbreaking  scholarship in the areas of copyright, trademark, cyberproperty, video games, and virtual worlds was interdisciplinary. It forged new fields and impacted cultural studies, media studies, and computer science, as well as law. As engaged as he was in diverse disciplines, Prof. Lastowka was also interested in diverse modes of production. He asked in many ways and about many subjects, how law and institutions interact with imaginative play. The annual Greg Lastowka Memorial Project will honor this inquiry with innovative presentations and explorations that reflect Prof. Lastowka's serious purpose and sense of fun.

Presented by the Rutgers Institute for Information Policy and Law (RIIPL), Dean Dan Hunter of Swinburne University of Technology School of Law will discuss, "Playing Well: The Intellectual Property of LEGO" at 4 p.m. Following the talk, a 5:30 p.m. reception will be held with music performed by The Underhills. The event will take place in the Clark Commons,  the second-floor bridge, located in law school's east building.
