- Monday, May 20, 10AM: “Copyright and the Academy: The Battle Turns to the Courts” Dr. Kenneth Crews, Columbia University Copyright Advisory Office
For many years, universities and some copyright owners have sparred over interpretations of fair use and other critical provisions of the law. This presentation will offer insights into these cases and pending developments in Congress. It will also examine reasons why the copyright issues that were once the domain of respectful agreement have escalated (or deteriorated) into litigation.
Dr. Kenneth D. Crews is director of the Copyright Advisory Office at Columbia University in New York City where he also teaches in the Columbia Law School. Crews served as the expert witness for the university defendants in the Georgia State case involving fair use of materials for teaching.Room 271, Auditorium. Refreshments from 9-10.
