Friday, March 20, 2020, GWU Law School Intellectual Property Programs will hold a symposium sponsored by Latham & Watkins: I Hear America Suing: Implications of Unsettled Copyright Infringement Jurisprudence for American Music and Musicians. The program is open to the public without charge. If you plan to attend, please register on the symposium website.
Gary Rosen, intellectual property lawyer and Drexel University law professor, published his excellent and exhaustive study of the life and times of copyright hero Nathan Burkan: Adventures of a Jazz Age Lawyer: Nathan Burkan and the Making of American Popular Culture (University of California Press 2020). This publication follows Rosen’s similarly comprehensive, and ultimately poignant, book about copyright pariah Ira Arnstein: Unfair to Genius: The Strange and Litigious Career of Ira B. Arnstein (Oxford University Press 2012).
