Bradford a Presenter at New York Symposium

Professor Laura Bradford was a presenter at a July 8 US-EU Media Conference entitled, "Evolving Business Models in the Newspaper Industry." The event was held at the IESE Business School in New York and attended by legal scholars and top-level executives for international organizations such as the Associated Press, Thomson-Reuters, The New York Times, Axel Springer AG, Scripps-Howard, News Corp., and Microsoft.

Bradford discussed the protection of digital content in the United States, including the possible use of copyright and misappropriation legislation to defend publication rights, and cautioned that courts might prove reluctant to grant automatic injunctions in consideration of First Amendment rights.
