I’m pleased to announce that the Copyright and Technology Conference is returning to New York. Our next event will be Tuesday, January 19, at the Kimmel Center at NYU, Eisner & Lubin Auditorium. After a three-year hiatus in London, we’re back and better than ever.
I am especially proud to announce my new partners in the conference: the Copyright Society of the USA and Musonomics. The Copyright Society is a leading professional association for attorneys and others involved in the copyright field; it is well known and respected for its events around the country, its Journal, and its influence through the industry honors it offers. The Copyright Society will be handling event registration, which will be up and running shortly, as well as New York State CLE credits for attendees. I’m working with Eleanor Lackman, co-chair of the NYC chapter of the Copyright Society and a partner at the law firm of Cowan DeBaets Abrahams & Sheppard, who has been a speaker at past Copyright and Technology conferences.
Musonomics is a music industry consultancy founded by Larry Miller, a highly respected digital music executive who now runs the Music Business program at NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. Musonomics is also a very informative and timely podcast about the music business.
The agenda for the conference is posted. Our keynote speaker will be Jacqueline Charlesworth, General Counsel and Associate Register of Copyrights at the U.S. Copyright Office. We’re accepting proposals to speak and moderate panels through Friday November 20; proposals to moderate panels will be given priority. Please email proposals to me with the following information:
- Contact info
- Panel(s) being proposed
- Perspective and experience related to the panel topic
In addition, as in the past, we are offering sponsorship opportunities, including the opportunity to work with us in creating a plenary session on a topic of importance to the digital copyright community (no sales pitches please). Please inquire and we’d be happy to send you a prospectus with details.
