Issue No. 597 - October 22, 2015

Professor Robert Brauneis of George Washington University Law School will deliver the 12th Annual Christopher A. Meyer Memorial Lecture on Tuesday, November 17, at the Law School. The United States Copyright Office co-sponsors the Meyer Memorial Lecture with the firm Meyer, Klipper & Mohr, George Washington University Law School, and the Copyright Society of the USA. Christopher Meyer was a policy planning advisor at the Copyright Office from 1983 to 1987 in addition to holding other positions in the federal government and the private sector. Through the lecture, prominent practitioners and academics set forth their views on copyright law and related issues.

Titled “The Landscape of American Cultural Production, 1978–2012: A Quantitative Look Through the Lens of Copyright Registrations,” Professor Brauneis’s lecture will draw on research he carried out between 2013 and 2015 while serving as the Copyright Office’s first Abraham L. Kaminstein Scholar in Residence. The Kaminstein Scholar in Residence Program allows the Register of Copyrights to bring leading academics to the Copyright Office to work on mutually beneficial projects. In addition to serving on the law faculty, Professor Brauneis co-directs the George Washington University Law School’s Intellectual Property Program and is the author of numerous books and articles on copyright law.
