Description

Speakers: Jack Lerner

Join UC Irvine law professor and two-time LACS Trustee Jack Lerner for a tour through significant developments in copyright law during 2018. From the controversial decision in Gaye v. Williams, to the passage of the Music Modernization Act, to numerous lower court decisions on fair use, 2018 changed the copyright landscape, leaving us much to discuss. In this wide-ranging talk, Professor Lerner will review these important developments and many more with an eye to their long- and short-term ramifications
