Advanced Copyright Law Topics

This seminar will examine four or five advanced copyright law topics such as circumvention of technological protection measures, music licensing, fan fiction and user-created content, digital first sale, termination of transfers, intermediary liability, protection of sound recordings, and mass digitization. You will write weekly short (< 300 word) reaction papers and one longer (20 page) paper, which may be either a research paper on the copyright topic of your choice, or a draft with commentary of a new and much shorter copyright statute to replace the current one.
