CLE - Hot Topics in Copyright Law: Content Creation and Distribution and the Prospects for Copyright Reform

Wednesday, June 10, 2015 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


This panel discussion will focus on the state of copyright law, existing legal regimes governing the creation and distribution of content, and the prospects for copyright reform.  The panelists will focus their attention on music, taking about protections for musical compositions and sound recordings, compulsory vs. market-based approaches to licensing, the roles of various institutional players in the music industry (including publishers, labels, and performance rights organizations), and the scope of the fair use doctrine. 

This program will also address broader concerns in the copyright and content licensing landscape, including questions about the nature of authorship and transformative works in the visual arts context.  The event will feature presentations by the panelists and will incorporate time for discussion.
