Ed and Hank,
I know lots of programmers are fired up about recent copyright
legislation (several have stopped by to chat with me). The law school
has invited Prof. Eric Goldman (director of Santa Clara law school’s
high tech law institute) to give a lecture on this topic—his talk will
be tomorrow over the noon hour. Lunch is on us. All your students
and faculty are invited.
Recent Copyright Legislation (SOPA, PIPA, ACTA) and Controversies
Director of the High Tech Law Institute
Santa Clara School of Law
Tuesday, April 10, 2012
12:30 to 1:20 p.m.
University of Washington School of Law
William H. Gates Hall
Computers and the Internet have changed the way copyright law can (and
cannot) protect books, music, and movies. Today, many copyright
holders believe that the law does not protect creative works enough
but many others believe that copyright law provides far too much
protection. Congress and the Executive branch have entered the fray,
considering legislation such as the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).
Prof. Eric Goldman, an expert and blogger about copyright in
cyberspace will address this copyright controversy and the legislation
that has and perhaps should flow out of it.
