Event Details

The intersection of art, science, and technology has resulted in a creative boom in contemporary art and an emergent area of the Law.  


California Lawyers for the Arts is pleased to present a conversation between Emily A. Berger, Intellectual Property Fellow with Electronic Frontier Foundation, Mike Linksvayer, Vice President of Creative Commons, and Joel Slayton, Director of the CADRE Laboratory for New Media, and exploring the ways copyright laws are implicated in new media art and the challenges artists face in this evolving area of the law and is co-sponsored by Bay Area Glass Institute, Phantom Galleries, San Jose Institute of Contemporary Arts, and Association of Viet Arts.


Topics for discussion may include derivative works, best practices, defensible positions, reproduction and public display rights and the Internet, peer-to-peer file sharing, streaming, fair use, and their views on whether current copyright laws are promoting or stifling creativity and the direction in which they feel the law is or should evolve.

 

Pre-registration is strongly recommended for this program.
