Nimmer on Copyright: Celebrating 50 Years

March 6th 3:00 p.m. (EST)
Coolidge Auditorium
Library of Congress
Jefferson Building

The U.S. Copyright Office will host a Copyright Matters program on March 6, 2013, at 3:00 p.m. in the Coolidge Auditorium of the Library of Congress. A panel of experts will address “Nimmer on Copyright: Celebrating 50 Years” with reflections about the treatise and copyright law. The panel includes David Nimmer, UCLA School of Law and Irell & Mangella LLP, and Jon Baumgarten, former general counsel in the Copyright Office; Barton Beebe, professor of law at New York University School of Law; Robert Brauneis, professor of law at The George Washington University Law School; and Shira Perlmutter, chief policy officer and director for international affairs at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Joseph Salvo, president of the Copyright Society of the USA, will give opening remarks. The event is free and open to the public.

The Copyright Matters lecture series was founded by Register of Copyrights Maria A. Pallante in 2011 as a community forum to discuss the practical implications of copyright law in the 21st century and to provide education and training to the staff of the U.S. Copyright Office. Through the series, a wide range of invited speakers – including Congressional leaders, authors, market experts, and legal scholars – present topics of critical importance to the copyright debate. Lectures occur throughout the year at the historic Library of Congress and include discussions about authorship, copyright registration, marketplace investment, copyright enforcement, fair use, international norm setting, orphan works and other updates and revisions of copyright law for the digital age.
