Copyright Law


The Copyright Law Committee takes a broad view of copyright issues to better inform its members. Accordingly, the Committee's attention extends beyond Title 17 Federal copyright and mask work protection to include preemption, fashion law, as well as issues of rights of publicity/privacy and misappropriation, which generally fall within entertainment law. Similarly, the interface between trademark and copyright, and the application of the moral rights doctrine within the U.S., the law of trade secrets, software and design patent matters, and copyright licensing (e.g., shrink wrap licensing) are also addressed. Finally, in this age of information, the Committee takes pains to assure that issues are considered on a global basis.

The Committee presents meetings each year. Suggestions for speakers are particularly welcome, as are non-Committee members.
