Extra! Extra! The Scoop on Copyright Law and the News
Issue No. 727 - September 26, 2018

The Copyright Office will host the Copyright Matters event “Extra! Extra! The Scoop on Copyright Law and the News” on Monday, October 15 at 10:30 a.m. in the historic Coolidge Auditorium in the Jefferson Building in Washington, DC.

Five panelists will discuss the relationship between copyright law and journalism. They will explore copyright’s role in promoting a free press, including news business models (both traditional and novel approaches), new avenues for speakers who traditionally didn’t have a public voice, news aggregation, and copyright law exceptions and limitations such as fair use.

The panel discussion will feature Sharon Farmer, former director of the White House Photography Office; Robert Levine, Billboard reporter and author of “Free Ride”; Tom Curley, associate general counsel at Gannett Co., Inc; Jonathan Band, technology law and policy advocate; and Michael Carroll, American University professor of law and director of the Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property and a co-founder of Creative Commons.
