    Please join us as Rebecca Tushnet, the Frank Stanton Professor of the First Amendment at Harvard Law School, delivers the 2023 David L. Lange Lecture on Intellectual Property. After clerking for Chief Judge Edward R. Becker of the Third Circuit and Associate Justice David H.

Her publications include "Worth a Thousand Words: The Images of Copyright Law" (Harvard L. Rev. 2012); "Gone in 60 Milliseconds: Trademark Law and Cognitive Science" (Texas L. Rev. 2008); and "Copy This Essay: How Fair Use Doctrine Harms Free Speech and How Copying Serves It" (Yale L.J. 2004). Her work currently focuses on copyright, trademark and false advertising law. Her blog, at tushnet.blogspot.com, has been on the ABA's Blawg 100 list of top legal blogs for the past three years. Sponsored by the Office of the Dean.
