Eleanor M. Lackman – “Copyright Enforcement on the Edge” – CMJ 2012

Eleanor M. Lackman will moderate the panel “Copyright Enforcement on the Edge” (at NYU’s Kimmel Center, Silver Board Room), Friday, October 19 from 1:30pm to 2:30pm, as part of the CMJ 2012 Music Marathon (and as part of the Entertainment Business Law Seminar co-sponsored by the EASL section of The New York State Bar Association).

Years after YouTube’s launch, online providers have more sophisticated software tools than ever before for screening for infringing content. Yet even the most recent court decisions about what technical measures are required, and who is liable for copyright infringements, concern business practices from years ago. Drawing on lessons from cases such as UMG v. YouTube, Ms. Lackman leads this panel (that includes representatives from Sony Music, Google, Viacom and Public Knowledge) to discuss where the outer edge of copyright enforcement currently lies and the developments that will change the legal map.

Ms. Lackman focuses on litigation and counseling in copyright, trademark, digital media and entertainment, with a specialization in matters at the intersection of intellectual property and new technology; she lectures and is published widely in the field.

For five days (October 16th — 20th ), the CMJ 2012 Music Festival — headquartered at NYU’s Greenwich Village campus — features over 1300 artist performances, filling 80 of the city’s top venues. Attendees have access to over 80 panels, seminars, Q&As, and exclusive mixers and parties. Click here for more information, including CLE credit details, and to register.
