Please join the Sports and Entertainment Law Society and the Intellectual Property and Cyberlaw Society as we welcome Hillel Parness of Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi L.L.P. and Professor David Levine of Elon University School of Law as they debate the merits, benefits, and downsides to legislation meant to prevent online piracy and copyright infringement. Both the House and Senate introduced bills with this intent last year, which both failed, but these bills generated a vigorous debate between supporters and opponents that we hope to replicate at this event. With the powerful entertainment industries lobbying for more protection from online piracy and copyright infringement, these attempts are unlikely to be the last congressional attempts to strengthen the existing protections. Lunch will be provided. For more information, please contact Shelby Highstein at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prof. Sam Buell discusses his new book on the rise of criminal behavior in corporations and why it’s so difficult to prosecute.
