Join some of the nation’s leading digital media lawyers for a conversation on the law that impacts your professional life. We’ll talk about how the fair use doctrine attempts to reconcile copyright protection with freedom of speech; how websites can limit liability for user-generated content; whether “freedom of speech” is (or should be) different from “freedom of the press”; and explore data collection and privacy.
