I’m thrilled to announce that the Copyright and Technology Conference is back. We’re going to be virtual this year; the dates are September 22 and 23. Once again, I am proud to be co-producing the conference with the Copyright Society of the USA, which has been very successful with virtual events during the course of the pandemic. Our conference is now the season kick-off event for the Copyright Society’s New York Chapter; hence the move from January to September. We hope to return to in-person next year.
We will have two one-hour sessions on each of the two days. Click on any of them to see the session description:
- Is There a Filter in Your Future? The Paths of Platform Liability in the U.S. and Europe
- Leaving the Garden: Licensing Comes to Podcasting
- Synch and Swim: Music Synch Licensing and the Online Video Explosion
- NFTs and Inclusiveness in the Art Market
Registration info will be available shortly. Meanwhile, I’m accepting proposals to speak on any of these panels now. Please send your proposal with the following information:
- The basics: proposed speaker’s name, position, organization, etc.
- A bio or CV, or a link to one (LinkedIn profile or company web page is fine)
- Session name
- Brief description of speaker’s perspective on or experience with the topic
- Contact information of proposed speaker
I will accept proposals on a rolling basis, but we intend to publish the full slate of speakers by the middle of August. We value diversity in our speaker roster. If you are submitting a proposal on behalf of someone else, please note that if the proposal is accepted, the speaker must confirm personally before they will be put on the program.
