The University of Washington School of Law will be holding:
Fair Use In The Digital Age:
Understanding the Impact of Campbell v. Acuff-Rose's "Transformative Use Test"
April 17-18, 2015
This two-day copyright conference will evaluate the impact of Campbell v. Acuff-Rose (the “Pretty Woman” case) on current law and controversies. While the Copyright Act gives a four-part test for determining fair use, as a result of Campbell’s reasoning, many courts and commentators focus almost exclusively on whether the allegedly infringing work is “transformative.” This conference will explore the implications and appropriate applications of this test in a world that is now primarily online, in which digital transformative use is ubiquitous.
CLE credits, including ethics, pending.
Keynote Speakers include Member Pamela Samuelson of U.C. Berkeley, as well as Judge Pierre Leval of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, Senior Status and Justin Hughes of Loyola University, Los Angeles.
