Recent enforcement efforts by entities such as Righthaven have raised a number of questions regarding ethics and professional responsibility as applied to the assertion of copyright infringement claims. There are many reports that enforcing copyrights against numerous, sometimes small, alleged infringers has become quite a lucrative business model. At the same time, the creators making these claims are often those with less resources and a greater need for legal intervention.
Join us as a noted ethics expert, along with representatives of both the owner-creator and defense bars, uses hypothetical fact patterns to lead an interactive and engaging discussion among the panelists and the attendees on various ethics and moral issues that may arise in copyright litigation.
