Join us for our inaugural New York Chapter Brown Bag Lunch, the first in series of informal panel discussions on a range of copyright topics. Brown Bag Lunches will be intimate and casual with ample opportunity for audience participation. The series will cover both introductory and higher level topics.
U.S. Copyright Office's Report on Copyright Small Claims: Some Big Thoughts about Small Cases
In September 2013, the Register of Copyrights released a congressionally directed report on Copyright Small Claims. The report focused on the difficulties of making a copyright claim in federal courts and the many complexities raised by the current process.
The U.S. Copyright Office conducted four days of public hearings and received many written comments from individuals and interested groups in researching this issue. Considerations in the 200-plus page report include the constitutional constraints and procedural concerns facing copyright small claims, as well as the type of claims that may be eligible for alternative treatment.
This panel will discuss the legal issues prompting the report and its recommendations. Our distinguished panel of speakers will include:
· Jacqueline Charlesworth, General Counsel, U.S. Copyright Office
· Nancy Wolff, Partner, Cowan DeBaets Abrahams & Sheppard LLP
· Charles J. Sanders, Attorney at Law, PC
In true brown-bag spirit, no food or beverages will be provided, so attendees are encouraged to bring their own. The admission fee is kept modest to encourage attendance by new or solo practitioners and law students, but all are welcome!
Please register early. Space is limited. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
