Conference on the 100th Anniversary of the 1909 Copyright Act, April 30, SCU
By Eric Goldman
Please come to a Conference on the 100th Anniversary of the 1909 Copyright Act, April 30, at Santa Clara University. The event is co-sponsored by the High Tech Law Institute, Santa Clara University School of Law and Berkeley Center for Law & Technology, University of California Berkeley School of Law.
My hope is that the speakers will look back at the last 100 years of the 1909 Copyright Act to see what worked and what didn’t. Ideally, this might help us think more intelligently about developing copyright policy and drafting copyright provisions in the future.
I’m especially excited about this event because we are bringing together 2 dozen top copyright experts to spend a day geeking out on copyright law. If you’re not a diehard copyright enthusiast, this may not be the event for you. But if discussing copyright policy and doctrine with other smart copyright experts sounds like your idea of a good time, we think we’ve scheduled a day of pure bliss.
The event is free to attend but registration is required. There is a small fee if you want 7 hours of CLE credit. You can register for the event here. Hope you can join us.
