Event description: 

Thomas C. Rubin, Chief Intellectual Property Strategy Counsel, Microsoft Corporation will present a talk on Achieving Copyright Law at the Speed of Light. 

October 28th marks the fifteenth anniversary of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). Tom Rubin will explain how the DMCA’s notice-and-takedown regime has provided a workable framework for managing online copyright infringement – and that the biggest upcoming digital copyright issues are not what most people expect. Rubin argues that we need a copyright system that operates at the scale and speed of our networked world, enabling a freer flow of information between people and across devices.

The talk is sponsored by The Information Society Project, The Lillian Goldman Law Library and the Yale Library Associates
