Symposium will be followed by an evening roundtable event on Globalizing Fair Use
American University Washington College of Law’s Program and Information Justice and Intellectual Property and the American University International Law Review (“AUILR”) host this symposium exploring new directions in domestic and international copyright law promoting adoption of general copyright exceptions that are open and flexible.
For these purposes: A general exception applies a single test to multiple categories of use; An open exception can be applied to uses for potentially any purpose, use or work; A flexible exception is one applied through a proportionality test balancing the interests of rights holders with those of users, third parties and society at large.
AUILR will publish a dedicated volume of its law review with papers from the conference (which must be separately accepted by the Law Review). Advance consideration for publication will be given to articles submitted by March 21 to Sean Flynn (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the AUILR editor in chief (AUILR@wcl.american.edu). Those wishing to be considered for publication after the March 29 workshop should submit finished draft papers to AUILR@wcl.american.edu by May 31.
