Description:

Practicing Copyright Law In-House: An Insider’s Perspective
 
Wednesday, April 30, 12 - 1:30 p.m. at the law offices of Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP
 
Co-sponsored by the IP Law Section of The State Bar of Georgia, The Copyright Society of the U.S.A. and ICLE.
 
Copyright law is constantly evolving in an attempt to keep pace with technological developments. Where the law has not evolved fast enough, there is uncertainly that arises from applying old laws to unforeseen ways of distributing and consuming content. This poses particular challenges to in-house lawyers who are forced to make complicated decisions in a fast-paced environment. This panel will address the types of copyright issues being confronted by in-house lawyers on a day-to-day basis and provide perspective on how companies are addressing those issues. The panel also will discuss how outside counsel can help in-house attorneys navigate these rough waters.
 
Panelists:

  • Christine Cason, Chief Trademark and Copyright Counsel, Georgia-Pacific LLC
  • Gina Henschen, Senior Director, Business & Legal Affairs, The Weather Channel, LLC
  • Brenton Hund, Counsel, Turner Broadcasting System, Inc.
  • John Renaud, Senior Counsel, Turner Broadcasting System, Inc.

 
Moderator: Andrew Pequignot, Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP
