Clicking "Refresh": A New Look at Fair Use in the Digital Age
October 1, 2009
House of the Association, 42 West 44th Street
Registration: The program free. Registration is required.
This panel discussion will address the ways in which copyright lawĄŚs fair use doctrine has evolved (or may be tested) in an era in which the rise of news aggregation, social networking, and a variety of other websites increasingly allow internet users to combine and transform content from endless sources of media. How transformative are on-line montages and mash-ups? Is the aggregation of headlines or content from news providers infringement or fair use? Does posting copyrighted content on a userĄŚs Facebook or Myspace page undermine the market for that content? When does a bloggerĄŚs summary of an article appropriate enough content to constitute copyright infringement? Panelists will offer a broad range of perspectives on these an other issues from the bench, bar, media industry, and legal academy.
