Copyright Law as Communications Policy

COPYRIGHT LAW AS COMMUNICATIONS

POLICY: CONVERGENCE OF CULTURES

AND PARADIGMS

 

Benjamin N. Cardozo

School of Law

Yeshiva University

 

April 2, 2001

 

DESCRIPTION

 
The advent of the Internet and new communications technologies has triggered interesting questions concerning the adequacy and continued relevance of existing paradigms used in both copyright and communications laws.  It has also created a new phenomenon in which the two legal cultures converge, in terms of academic scholarship, legal practice, regulatory solutions, and attitudes toward Congress.
 
To examine these changing paradigms and converging cultures, Cardozo brings together distinguished scholars and lawyers in the fields of constitutional law, intellectual property, and communications and technology law.  This unique symposium hopes to create a dialogue that addresses the various challenges confronting the current legal system and to frame an agenda for future research regarding intellectual property and communications laws.
