      Program Description
      Many copyright lawyers can determine what United States works are in the public domain in the United States, but they are unsure as to what rules apply in determining the potential impact of copyright terms outside of the United States. Dennis Angel, noted authority on United States and foreign copyright law, will tell us what we need to know about using non-U.S. works in the United States and what we need to know about exploiting works outside of the United States.

      The ART LAW AND CULTURE SOCIETY, in association with CARDOZO ART LAW
      SOCIETY is pleased to announce a ground-breaking event, THE EVER-CHANGING LEGAL CANVAS. The Symposium will bring together diverse strands from the New York artistic and legal communities and facilitate their interweaving through frank, educated discourse and represents a vital opportunity for the worlds of art and law to collide and connect.

      The Symposium will feature 4 panels that will cover ADR/Mediation, Warranties of
      Authenticity, Copyright, and the First Amendment. Panels will be comprised of both prominent Art Law Practitioners, New York State Judges, Attorneys, and Scholarly Academics as well as Artisans, Craftsmen, and important contemporary Sculptors, Photographers, and Painters. The Keynote Address will be by Dr. Herbert Lazerow. Graduate of Harvard Law School, and Université de Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne.

Dear Friends:

If you look at the top of the screen and sidebar you will see a new events widget and page. I find that I miss too many speaking events because I am either not informed or the date sneaks up on me. Case in point, today’s presentation on digital media that includes David Oxenford of Broadcast Law Blog fame. 

As a musician before law school, similarly, I was not aware of the services available from the legal community. I thought an events list might be my humble contribution to help remedy the situation. 

Let’s consider this a beta release: I haven’t spent enough time with the page to make it look pretty and this project may ultimately entail too much work. I also haven’t finished collecting all of the dates, especially from local and state intellectual property groups. If you would like to submit an event, please email me at events@senlawoffice.com. The events for the upcoming week are below.  

Very truly yours,

Shourin Sen
