Fred von Lohman is literally one of those special voices who needs no introduction. Agree with him, think his views extreme, or fall anywhere in between, one can still not help but respect and be thoughtfully engaged by his comprehensive and careful views on the proper scope and struture of federal copyright law.
In this audio presentation, join us as Fred and moderator Doug Lichtman engage a group of UCLA law students in a wide-ranging conversation about the Cablevision case, third-party liability, and copyright law's struggle to simultaneously encourage authorship while leaving adequate flexibility for distruptive technologies.
The Intellectual Property Colloquium is an online audio program devoted to intellectual property topics. We aspire to be something like an NPR talk show, but focused on copyrights and patents, and aimed primarily at a legal audience.
Our programs are neither lectures nor debates. They are instead conversations,with guests drawn from academia, the entertainment community, the judiciary, and various technology industries.
Each program lasts one hour and can either be played on the site or downloaded to any PC or MP3 player. Morever, lawyers who listen to the show can earn free CLE credit in California, New York, Tennessee, Texas, Illinois, Washington, and soon over a dozen other states.
The Colloquium is hosted by Doug Lichtman. Its student director is Chris Moen. Our current show, an archive of previous programs, a schedule of up-coming audios, and various subscription methods are all available at the site."
