The Northwest Chapter of the Copyright Society of the USA is sponsoring an interactive lunchtime presentation by renowned copyright scholar and Columbia University law professor Jane Ginsburg.  Professor Ginsburg will be speaking about fair use issues.   More specifically, Professor Ginsburg explains:

"Fair use has gone off the rails, first with the Sony 'Betamax' decision, and more recently with the transformation of 'transformative use' from a factor fostering new creativity to one favoring new copyright-dependent business models and socially beneficent reiterative uses.  We should cease muddling authorship-grounded fair uses with judge-made exceptions whose impetus derives from distinct considerations.  Moreover, I suggest that the other exceptions should not always produce free-passes.  Instead, I propose that many of the current social subsidy fair uses and market failure fair uses be 'permitted but paid,' and explore how we might implement that proposal.”

Lunch will be provided, and there will be a small charge to attend the event, discounted for current Copyright Society members.
