Join the New York chapter for a luncheon program on common law copyright and pre-1972 sound recordings. The program will focus on the legal framework and issues involved in the recent lawsuits involving royalties for webcasting of pre-1972 sound recordings. After providing a background of the key issues, the panel will discuss the potential practical impacts of affirmance or reversal of the recent Flo & Eddie decision, as well as whether the state-based issue of common law copyright for pre-1972 recordings is a matter that should be resolved at the federal level.
December 9 at midnight EST
June M. Besek, Executive Director, Kernochan Center for Law, Media and the Arts at Columbia Law School
Tucker McCrady, Greenberg Traurig, LLP
Gianni Servodidio, Jenner & Block
