The Copyright Society is sponsoring a very interesting event this Wednesday July27 in D.C. The program is entitled Appealing YouTube: The Experts Debate!” The program will debate the many safe harbor issues in Viacom v. YouTube now on appeal to the Second Circuit.
Moderating will be Robert Kasunic, the Deputy General Counsel, U.S. Copyright Office. The fine panelists are: Jonathan Band of Jonathan Band PLLC; Patrick Coyne of Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner LLP; Russell Frackman of Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp LLP; Ron Lazebnik: Fordham University School of Law; and Mary Rasenberger: Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP.
The program will take place between 4:00 to 6:00 p.m and Arent Fox LLP will host it at their offices on 1050 Connecticut Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C.
The networking reception will be from 4:00 to 4:30 p.m with the program to follow.
Attendance is $40 for Copyright Society members and non-members.
Sounds like this will be a great program.
