4/18: Symposium on Moral Rights Sponsored by Copyright Office and George Mason
Monday, March 14, 2016
The U.S. Copyright Office and the George Mason University School of Law and its Center for the Protection of Intellectual Property will host "Authors, Attribution, and Integrity: Examining Moral Rights in the United States," a one-day symposium on Monday, April 18, 2016.
The symposium will bring together authors, scholars, and other stakeholders for a broad discussion of copyright issues related to moral rights. Topics will include the historical development of moral rights, the value that authors place on moral rights generally and individual moral rights specifically, the various ways these rights are provided for under current law, and new considerations for the digital age. Further study of moral rights under U.S. copyright law is among the conclusions and recommendations made by the Register of Copyrights in testimony before Congress last spring, and this symposium will launch the Copyright Office’s further analysis on this subject.
The event is open to the public and will be held at the Library of Congress Madison Building at 101 Independence Avenue SE, Washington, DC.
