Friday, November 4, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

copyright-vs-public-domainBack to the Future: the 1976 Copyright Act and the Internet

It’s been 40 years since the 1976 Copyright Act passed and while the way we create, display, distribute, perform, repurpose, and share scholarly and creative content has changed dramatically, the basic tenants of the 1976 act still serve as the basis for copyright law today.

Join the CUNY Copyright Committee and the LACUNY Scholarly Communications Roundtable for a special presentation and discussion on the intersection of the 1976 act, its famous “fair use” provision, and the work of librarians and information professionals.

Guest Speaker: Amanda Levendowski  

Amanda Levendowski is a supervising attorney and Teaching Fellow with NYU’s Technology Law & Policy Clinic. Her projects and research primarily address the development of practical, usable approaches to digital problems. Before joining NYU Law, she worked as an associate with Cooley LLP and Kirkland & Ellis LLP, where her practice focused on copyright, free speech, trademark, and privacy law. She received her B.A. summa cum laude from New York University in Publishing, Copyright, and Technology and received her J.D. from NYU Law, where she was awarded the Walter J. Derenberg Prize in copyright law.

Refreshments will be provided.
