As an intellectual property law firm, our team at The Lomnitzer Law Firm, P.A. created the Copyright in Cyberspace Scholarship because we firmly believe that artists possess the right to freely express themselves. Each year, we invite students to discuss the fairness of major content-sharing platforms and how the digital age has impacted the rules and regulations of copyright. We proudly award our winners with $1,000 to help contribute toward their educational endeavors. Below are our past scholarship winners:

2022 Winner: Christopher Wilkinson

Biography: My name is Christopher Wilkinson and I have lived in eastern South Dakota my whole life. Born in Aberdeen, raised in Watertown, and graduated in Brandon, I have moved around what feels like such a small place several times. Despite it all, I have focused on my studies and my future. I have enrolled into South Dakota School of Mines & Technology for chemical engineering and plan to attain a Master’s degree in 5 years. With enough perseverance, anything is possible.
