Join us for the 2009-2010 JETL Symposium: Drawing Lines in the Digital Age: Copyright, Fair Use, and Derivative Works

JETL’s annual symposium will take place this Friday, October 23, 2009 at Vanderbilt Law School. This Fall’s symposium, entitled “Drawing Lines in the Digital Age: Copyright, Fair Use, and Derivative Works” focuses on copyright law and asks questions about the line between fair use and copyright infringement, where various forms of user-generated content fall along this spectrum, and how these problems have been affected by the advent of digital technology. The symposium features presentations and discussion by 11 eminent copyright scholars. This event is open to the general public and CLE credit will be available for practitioners. Please contact Spencer Compton, elizabeth.s.compton@vanderbilt.edu for more information.
