The Information Economy Project Mini-Conference

Wednesday, October 12, 2011 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
GMU School of Law, Room 215, 3301 Fairfax Drive, Arlington, Va.

The Information Economy Project at George Mason University Presents: Copyright Compromises: Creators’ Rights, ISP Efficiency & Consumer Welfare A Mini-Conference @ George Mason University School of Law Wednesday, October 12, 2011 9 am - 12 pm @ Room 215 GMU School of Law, 3301 Fairfax Drive, Arlington, VA (Orange Line: Virginia Square-GMU Metro) In July, copyright holders and Internet service providers produced a “six strikes” agreement brokered by the White House. The deal protects intellectual property rights in cyberspace, with the help of ISPs. Is this an efficiency-enhancing compromise -- or an abomination? ISPs create value in managing networks, mitigating spam and malware. Are the ISP responsibilities in IP enforcement an extension of these functions, or a new strain that will prove counter-productive? 8:15 AM – 9:00 AM Continental Breakfast 9:00 AM Welcoming Remarks Daniel Polsby, Dean, George Mason University School of Law Sarah Oh, Information Economy Project (organizer) 9:10 AM Legal Issues in the Copyright Settlement Christopher Newman, Prof. of Law George Mason University (moderator) Ben Depoorter, Professor of Law, UC Hastings Law School Sherwin Siy, Deputy Legal Director, Public Knowledge 10:10 AM How the ISPs Work, Before & After the Copyright Enforcement Deal Christopher Newman, Prof. of Law, George Mason University (moderator) Daniel Castro, Information Technology & Innovation Foundation Steve Marks, General Counsel, RIAA Keith Epstein, General Attorney & Associate General Counsel, AT&T Nick Feamster, Assistant Professor of Computer Science, Georgia Tech 12:00 PM Adjourn Reserve your spot via email: iep.gmu@gmail.com.
