Program Materials

This CLE webinar will prepare copyright counsel to police and protect against copyright infringement on the internet. The panel will outline the tools available to monitor IP rights and examine fair use defenses and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) safe harbor.

Description

The internet is a continually evolving testing ground for new methods of copyright protection and novel theories of infringement. Examples include:

  • Unprecedented theories of secondary liability that seek to hold banks, credit card companies, advertisers, and search engines liable for copyright infringement--even when the underlying infringement is due to user-generated or unrelated third-party content.
  • Battles over the meaning of "display" under 17 USC Sec. 106 in the internet context.
  • Fair use as a doctrine, an affirmative defense, or a substantive limit on the scope of a copyright holder's right to exclude.
  • Technological solutions to copyright infringement and digital rights management.

Listen as our panel of IP attorneys guides you through the latest developments in policing and preventing copyright infringement on the internet. The panel will examine recent court rulings, the tools available to monitor copyrights, fair use defenses, the DMCA safe harbor, and the scope and limitations of copyright protection on the internet.
