Copyright, Technology, and the Public’s Need to Have Entertainment on Demand

As described on the Syracuse University College of Law site, Law Live @ Lubin is a monthly conversation series for Syracuse University alumni and members of the NYC legal community. The series will examine how the Law influences the workplace, the marketplace, the nation, and the world and how these entities, in turn, can significantly impact and shape the Law. Law Live @ Lubin is sponsored by the Syracuse University College of Law and the Joseph I. Lubin House.

As part of this series, Loeb partner Barry Slotnick will present “Copyright, Technology, and the Public’s Need to Have Entertainment on Demand.”
Copyright law has always attempted to balance the rights of authors with the public's access to creative works. The system worked well, with little public awareness, when the authors or their designees controlled the time, place and medium of distribution. In little more than a decade, the public no longer needs or wants to wait for copyright owners to choose the ways in which they will enjoy their favorite works. The marketplace is speaking and the copyright owners and creators are trying to understand the message. The resolution of these issues will have a significant effect on the way Americans and the world enjoy (and pay for) their favorite movies, television programs, music and sporting events. NYS CLE credit can be earned for attending this program.
