Intellectual property

Dear Mr. Schlafly,

You wrote: "Intellectual Property Power: Congress sets the laws for patents, copyrights and trademarks, which are called “intellectual property” because they are abstract products of intelligence rather than physical property." Strictly speaking, Congressional authority to make trademark law comes from the Commerce Clause, not the Copyright & Patent Clause. See [1] ("The USPTO registers trademarks based on the Commerce Clause of the Constitution (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3)."). GregG 12:17, 8 September 2012 (EDT)

That's an excellent point!!! I'll look now to see if the lecture needs to be corrected about this, and change it if it does. Please feel free to edit the lecture yourself.--Andy Schlafly 12:32, 8 September 2012 (EDT)

Structure of congress

Perhaps you should explain the difference between a unicameral and a bicameral legislature? Wschact 08:24, 10 September 2012 (EDT)
