ARTICLES
Collateralizing Intellectual
Property ............................ Xuan-Thao Nguyen
This Article argues that the process of collateralization of
intellectual property lacks transparency. Consequently, the
current Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code may
unfairly advance secured creditor's rights at the expense of
intellectual property creators-such as authors and
inventors-who are the debtors, and ultimately at the
expense of society as a whole. The hidden costs of using
intellectual property rights as collateral in secured
transactions may prevent intellectual property creators from
creating future works based on their early creations. This
Article identifies and critiques the collateralization of
intellectualproperty, revealing the complexity of intersecting
secured transaction law, namely Article 9 of the Uniform
Commercial Code, and doctrinal intellectual property laws
such as patent law, copyright law, and trademark law. The
inquiry challenges the silence surrounding the pervasive use
of intellectual property as collateral in secured financing
and suggests changes to the existing framework on secured
financing law.
Representing Saddam Hussein: The
Importance of Being Ramsey Clark ..... Lonnie T. Brown, Jr.  47
This Article examines the professional life of former U.S.
Attorney General Ramsey Clark in an effort to understand
the many controversial representations and causes that he
has undertaken during    his post-government career.
Professor Brown does so through the vehicle of perhaps
Ramsey Clark's most perplexing client choice-deposed
Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. Although Hussein had
other competent attorneys prepared and willing to represent
him, Ramsey Clark nevertheless felt compelled to volunteer
his services to the defense team. Why would he do so, and
was his decision an ethically proper one under the
circumstances?
These are the specific questions that this Article endeavors
