Copyright expert and scholar David Nimmer discussed current developments in U.S. copyright law and how they push us in unanticipated directions when he delivered the annual Meredith and Kip Frey Lecture in Intellectual Property. Among other matters, he explored the potential for recent Supreme Court decisions to upset a large body of jurisprudence, and whether "The Cloud" might push the law in the opposite direction. Nimmer, of counsel to Irell & Manella LLP in Los Angeles, also serves as Professor from Practice at University of California, Los Angeles Law School and Distinguished Scholar at the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology. He is the author of the foundational reference treatise, "Nimmer on Copyright."
