What’s Fair is Foul: Has The Transformative Use Doctrine Transformed Copyright Law For Better or Worse?
Fair use and the bounds of the transformational use have been front and center in a range of copyright cases this past year. A panel of experts from all sides of the fair use landscape will discuss fair use as it applies to search, digitization and accessibility. Are mass digitization projects simply mass infringement? Is fair use leaving room for legitimate business models? How much transformation is enough? We’ll address all these questions and more.
Panelists: Dave Green, Assistant General Counsel, Microsoft (Moderator); Dale Cendali, Partner, Kirkland & Ellis; Joseph Gratz, Partner, Durie Tangri; Peter Menell, Professor, UC Berkeley School of Law; Joseph Petersen, Partner, Kilpatrick Townsend
