Why You Should Attend:
IP Discussions with Joshua Simmons is a series of conversations hosted by nationally recognized intellectual property litigator, Joshua Simmons. Each month, Josh is joined by a panel of IP luminaries, leading scholars, and industry insiders. Together, they examine major topics and events in a civil, roundtable format.
Although intellectual property discussions often focus on economic rights, for many authors, moral rights are an integral component of their IP portfolio. In particular, many authors (rightly or wrongly) believe that they have a right to attribution for their works. There, however, are commentators who have raised concerns that moral rights may unduly limit third parties’ rights to use copyrighted works to promote progress.
What You Will Learn:
The faculty will discuss the foundations and limits of moral rights in intellectual property law. After completing this session, participants will be able to define:
• What are moral rights?
• What are the limits on moral rights?
• How, if at all, should moral rights be expanded?
Who Should Attend:
IP lawyers and practitioners advising on moral rights should find this program to be informative.
