Maria Pallante, the Register of Copyrights at the United States Copyright Office, recently called for a comprehensive review and update to the U.S. Copyright Act. Ms. Pallante stated that, "[t]he law is showing the strain of its age and requires your attention. As many have noted, authors do not have effective protections, good faith businesses do not have clear roadmaps, courts do not have sufficient direction, and consumers and other private citizens are increasingly frustrated."

The panel will provide unique perspectives on how Ms. Pallante's request, pending legislation, political strategies, and trends in the media and entertainment industry may be effective tools to close the divide between the law and contemporary creative expression.

TOPICS AND SPEAKERS:
REFORMATION OF THE U.S. COPYRIGHT ACT: AN ANALYSIS AND PROPOSAL
Hon. Richard A. Posner, United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit; Senior Lecturer, University of Chicago Law School
