||This seminar will focus on copyright law in the digital age, with a particular eye toward how the Internet and copyright law are shaping each other. The course will begin with a high-level survey of basic copyright principles, and then move into applying those principles to the constantly changing world of the Internet and digital technology. Subjects to be considered include secondary liability, peer-to-peer file-sharing and the plight of the music industry, the Google Books proceeding, statutory licenses, user-generated content issues, enforcement mechanisms in the digital age, and Congress's efforts (or non-efforts) to keep up with and foster new innovative technologies. Course discussions will focus on the likely direction of the law in this area, as well as the direction of the various stakeholders such as record labels, movie studios, Internet companies, technology companies, and everyday consumers. Assigned materials will include selections of cases, statutes, and secondary sources. No prior knowledge of or exposure to copyright law is required, though the seminar is particularly recommended for students who have already taken or plan to take Copyright Law.
