Fordham IP Institute

On January 16, 2018, Giant Steps Media and the Copyright Society of the U.S.A. brought the ninth annual Copyright and Technology NYC 2018 to Fordham Law School.  The Fordham IP Institute was pleased to host the annual one-day conference, which focused on the dramatic and fast-moving influences that technology has on copyright in the digital age.

The Conference Agenda included plenary sessions on black box music royalties and a Keynote Address by Jonathan Taplin, author of Move Fast and Break Things: How Google, Facebook and Amazon Have Cornered Culture and Undermined Democracy. Technology Track sessions addressed problems with matching music recordings to compositions and e-book watermarking.  Distinguished Senior Fellow Nicholas Bartelt moderated a session entitled “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore: Software Protection in the Post-Alice Era.” Law & Policy Track sessions considered the problems posed by Sci-Hub for scientific publishers; the future of digital first sale; and artificial intelligence and copyright.

Full session details, including speakers and session descriptions, is available on the Copyright and Technology NYC conference website.
