Burns Senior Lecture
The Cardozo IP & Information Law Program Invites you to the Annual Burns Senior Lecture:
Replay TV: That 70s Show
In 2012, startup company Aereo began offering an application that allows its users to stream and time-shift broadcast TV to desktops, tablets, smartphones, and other devices. In light of the Supreme Court's decision to hear arguments from Aereo and broadcasters, this lecture will consider the scope of copyright's public performance right and other issues in current copyright litigation cases.
David Nimmer, professor from practice at UCLA School of Law, is currently of counsel to Irell & Manella LLP in Los Angeles and represents clients in the entertainment, publishing, and high-technology fields. Since 1985, he has updated and revised Nimmer on Copyright, the standard reference treatise in the field, first published in 1963 by his late father, Professor Melville B. Nimmer. Routinely cited by courts in copyright litigation, over 3000 cases within the United States and abroad have relied on Nimmer on Copyright as authority (including, in 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court and the High Court of Deli).
