Copyright & Personal Copying: Sony v. Universal City Studios Twenty Years Later
Sponsor
Law, Technology, and the Arts Symposium
FEB 25, 2005
8:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Location
Moot Courtroom (A59)
In Sony v. Universal City Studios, the U.S. Supreme Court concluded that the VCR, once described as the equivalent of the "Boston Strangler" for copyrighted works, did not violate copyright law. With the emergence of the Internet and other new technologies, artists, entrepreneurs, and lawmakers continue to grapple with the decision and its implications for copyright and new technologies. At this symposium, which marks the 20th anniversary of the decision, media experts, law scholars and practitioners will discuss what the decision has meant for innovators and secondary liability, its impact on the fair use doctrine and private copying, and how the decision is playing out from a variety of perspectives.
Speaker Information
Luncheon Speaker
Wendy J. Gordon
Professor of Law and Paul J. Liacos Scholar-in-Law
Boston University School of Law


Wendy J. GordonThe writings of Wendy Gordon aim to help foster a healthy legal environment for creative people - not only the established "players" in the movie, music, software and publishing industries, but also the rest of us. Another creative environment she cares about is the classroom, and Professor Gordon loves teaching. She has received an award from the Ronald A. Cass Fund for Teaching Excellence, and speaks all over the world.

In 2003, Professor Gordon published The Economics of Copyright (co-edited with economist Richard Watt of the University of Madrid). Professor Gordon is currently at work on a new book that integrates and extends her interdisciplinary work in intellectual property which is tentatively titled, The Ethics and Economics of Intellectual Property. Professor Gordon's current articles include "Rendering Copyright Unto Caesar" for the University of Chicago Law Review (forthcoming) and the Oxford Handbook on Legal Studies chapter on "Intellectual Property." Her previous articles include "An Inquiry into the Merits of Copyright" (Stanford Law Review), "Fair Use as Market Failure" (Columbia Law Review), "On Owning Information" (Virginia Law Review), and "A Property Right in Self Expression" (Yale Law Journal).

Professor Gordon has published in Australia, Canada, Europe, and India. The United States Supreme Court in three opinions cited

her articles. Among Professor Gordon's honors are: being named a Fulbright Scholar; being elected to the Visiting Senior Research Fellowship at St. John's College, Oxford; receiving a residency at the Rockefeller Foundation retreat in Bellagio, Italy; and receiving a New Jersey Governor's Fellowship in the Humanities. She is a member of the editorial board of the Encyclopedia of Law and Economics, serves as the general secretary of the Society for Economic Research on Copyright Issues, and has chaired the Intellectual Property section of the AALS.
