Join Us at the Copyright and Technology NYC 2016 Conference on January 19

Co-produced by GiantSteps, the Copyright Society, and Musonomics, the Copyright and Technology NYC 2016 Conference will be held at New York University’s Kimmel Center on Tuesday, January 19th. CPIP is a proud Media Sponsor of the event.

The conference program is available here, and registration is still open here.

Jacqueline Charlesworth, General Counsel and Associate Register of Copyrights at the U.S. Copyright Office, will be the keynote speaker. The timing is very fortuitous, as the Copyright Office just last week announced a new study to evaluate the effectiveness of the DMCA’s safe harbor provisions in Section 512 of the Copyright Act. Among the issues to be studied are the “costs and burdens of the notice-and-takedown process” and “how successfully section 512 addresses online infringement.” These very issues will be discussed at the conference.

The conference panels will discuss topics including live streaming, notice-and-staydown, copyright management information, safe harbor eligibility, collective licensing, and mass digitization. CPIP’s Executive Director Matthew Barblan will moderate the panel on safe harbor eligibility, and CPIP’s Assistant Director Devlin Hartline will be a panelist discussing notice-and-staydown.

We hope you will join us for an exciting and intellectually rewarding event!
