Evaluating Fair Use for Copyrights

Making Tough Calls on Excluding, Obtaining Permission, or Relying on Fair Use

A live 90-minute CLE webinar with interactive Q&A


Tuesday, August 29, 2017 (in 8 days)
1:00pm-2:30pm EDT, 10:00am-11:30am PDT


This CLE webinar will provide guidance to IP counsel on the fair-use evaluation process, review recent court decisions, and offer best practices for the use of third-party copyrighted works.

Description

Using a third-party’s copyrighted work is a necessary step in many client projects and deals. Counsel must understand when unlicensed use of copyrighted material is protected by the fair-use doctrine, whether obtained from, or used in, published works, advertising, films or social media. Fair-use evaluation is one of the toughest challenges IP counsel face in this arena.

Listen as our authoritative panel of IP counsel reviews recent court guidance on evaluating fair use and discusses the challenges in the copyright and fair-use clearance process. The panel will offer best practices for evaluating fair use of third-party copyrighted works, including determining when to exclude content, seek permission or rely on fair use. The panel will also discuss appropriate media perils insurance coverage.
