    Digital Copyright
    Date: October 13, 2009
    Location:Boulder
    "Digital Copyright and Innovation Online: A Little Dose of Optimism," a Public Lecture by Fred von Lohmann of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Silicon Flatirons. Co-sponsored by the Intellectual Property Sections of the Colorado Bar Association and the Boulder County Bar Association. A number of court rulings have begun to create some clarity about the copyright rules that apply to Internet services that rely on "user generated content" (e.g., YouTube, Flickr, Blogger, Facebook, eBay). Those rules, founded on legislation passed by Congress in 1998, have made it possible for these online services to thrive. In response, members of the entertainment industry are howling about piracy and business model armageddon. In his talk, Fred von Lohmann, Senior Staff Attorney, will provide an overview of the emerging copyright rules and argue that Congress, the courts, and the marketplace have struck a balance that is proving surprisingly successful in protecting copyright incentives, stimulating innovation, and encouraging private ordering in the marketplace.
