Advancing Inclusion in Copyright and Register Barbara Ringer’s Legacy
Issue No. 858 - October 27, 2020
Join the U.S. Copyright Office, Georgetown Intellectual Property and Information Policy Clinic, and Georgetown Institute for Law and Policy online, on November 19 at 5 p.m. eastern time, as we examine the importance of creating space and opportunities in copyright and developing more diverse and inclusive legal systems for the benefit of all. This event extends and builds on the legacy of Barbara Ringer, a lead architect of the Copyright Act of 1976 and the first woman to serve as U.S. Register of Copyrights.
During the event, we will host a discussion with leading scholars on the relationship between intellectual property and critical race and feminist theory.
