Save the Date: Symposium on Moral Rights on Monday, April 18, 2016
Issue No. 613 - March 11, 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 a symposium on “Authors, Attribution, and Integrity: Examining Moral Rights in the United States" on Monday, April 18, 2016.
This day-long 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.
Open to the public, this event will be held in the Madison Building of the Library of Congress, located at 101 Independence Avenue SE, Washington, D.C. The agenda identifying the sessions has been posted. Please visit the event page to stay apprised of updated information about the agenda and speakers.
