Live stream tonight of special event for Terry Fisher's copyright courses: IP Protection for Fashion

Current Berkman People and Projects 2013-02-13


Join us this evening and throughout the Spring 2013 semester for a series of special webcasts featuring discussions from Professor Terry Fisher's Copyright course, hosted on the edX online learning platform. HLS1x Copyright, an experimental course offered on edX, explores in depth the law, theory, and practice of copyright. Tonight's webcast will feature Jeannie Suk & Chris Sprigman on the issue of  IP protection for fashion and will begin at 7PM ET.

The public stream of the webcast for each event will be available at the date and time listed below and on the course website.

Each of the events features a guest expert and examines a difficult issue growing out of, or adjacent to, copyright law. In the courses overall, and in the special events in particular, considerable attention is devoted to the relationship between copyright law and creative expression in a variety of fields: literature; music; film; photography; graphic art; software; comedy; fashion; and architecture. You can read more about the course here.
