9:00 Opening Remarks

Cydney A. Tune



9:15 Publicity Rights, Athlete Personas, and Technology

Learn about wrongful exploitation in the contexts of professional and amateur sports. Discussions will include the evolving state of the law of the Right of Publicity and multiple judicial tests used to determine liability. Find out how to balance between First Amendment interests against publicity rights, as well as the limited U.S. Supreme Court right of publicity jurisprudence. Hear pending sports cases likely to set the course of the law in this area, recognize public policy issues and understand considerations in licensing the right of publicity.

Elizabeth A. McNamara, Lateef Mtima



10:15 Copyright and Best Practices for Image Usage in the Digital World

The use of visual content has never more pervasive than in this era of digital publishing and “technotainment”. The abundance of visual content, however, has many traps for the unwary. The ease of merely dragging and copying images from one site to another may leave digital publishers exposed to liability under copyright law or other claims. This program will look at the current best practices in acquiring and using visual content in this digital environment. Topics will include recent cases involving the use of framing or embedding of content and whether such practices are infringing; when one can rely on fair use; the risk of using social media content, free content or content with Creative Commons licenses and understanding what is really in the public domain. In addition the program will look at the increased use of image tracking services by content owners to enforce copyright and what steps should be taken if you receive a claim to reduce your exposure.

2:45 Music Licensing in Today’s Digital World: A Changing Landscape

In recent years, the world of music licensing has changed dramatically not only for the traditional and online/digital media businesses that use music but also for the writers and recording artists that create it. This panel will discuss the changes, challenges and considerations that are a part of every music licensing negotiation with particular emphasis on the digital aspect of the deal. Areas covered include music use by the audio and audio-visual streaming services both subscription and free, apps, major studio and independent feature films, episodic television with its many online options, video game online streaming models including user generated content, digital consumer products and the role that legislation, litigation, performing rights organizations and other music collection and negotiation entities play in the music licensing process.

10:15 Copyright and Best Practices for Image Usage in the Digital World

The use of visual content has never more pervasive than in this era of digital publishing and “technotainment”. The abundance of visual content, however, has many traps for the unwary. The ease of merely dragging and copying images from one site to another may leave digital publishers exposed to liability under copyright law or other claims. This program will look at the current best practices in acquiring and using visual content in this digital environment. Topics will include recent cases involving the use of framing or embedding of content and whether such practices are infringing; when one can rely on fair use; the risk of using social media content, free content or content with Creative Commons licenses and understanding what is really in the public domain. In addition the program will look at the increased use of image tracking services by content owners to enforce copyright and what steps should be taken if you receive a claim to reduce your exposure.
