Forum shopping: you can't have your cake and eat it

An interesting posting on the always-worth-reading IP Whiteboard blog from King & Wood Mallesons here,  Marilyn Monroe's estate finding that the protection given to publicity rights under Californian law would be handy, but being stuck with the long-ago decision to rely on her residence in New York to establish domicile and avoid the estate taxes that would have been due had she been domiciled in California. Another nice illustration of a point about intellectual property law: the fundamental interconnectedness of all things means that there are always interesting interfaces and overlaps with other areas of law.
