Course Description

Time 61 minutes
Difficulty Intermediate

Copyright law is a dynamic and constantly evolving area of law. Recently, new advances in technology have helped mold our understanding of even long standing copyright traditions. This course, presented by Randy M. Friedberg, a partner with White and Williams, LLP, will cover many issues pertaining to copyright law in the United States.

The lecture will walk through the basic tenets of copyright law, such as how to obtain protection in original works, what rights are derived from copyright protection, and works made for hire. The course also addresses copyright infringement issues and more advanced topics, such as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and the evolving doctrine of fair use.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Grasp the scope of what is copyright eligible and the copyright bundle of rights
  2. Identify proper take-down procedures and liabilities under the Digital    Millennium Copyright Act
  3. Provide practical guidance to address copyright infringement issues
  4. Understand the boundaries of infringement versus fair use of protected works
