From Hypatia to Victor
Hugo to Larry & Sergey:
All the World’s Knowledge and Universal Authors’ Rights
Access to ‘all the world’s
knowledge’ is an ancient aspiration; a less venerable, but equally vigorous,
universalism strives for the borderless protection of authors’ rights. Late
19th-century law and politics brought us copyright universalism; 21st-century
technology may bring us the universal digital library, delivering ‘all the
world’s knowledge’ to users anywhere in the world. But how can the copyrights of
those works remain enforceable?
About the Roger L. Shidler
The Shidler Lecture Series
is named after Roger L. Shidler (UW Law class of 1924), a founder of the law
firm Shidler, McBroom, Gates & Lucas (now K&L Gates). Through the years,
the firm grew to become one of Seattle’s most vibrant and influential law
practices. To celebrate Roger Shidler’s legacy, this series brings
outstanding academics, judges and practicing lawyers to UW Law to discuss
leading issues in intellectual property law, an ever-more important economic
driver for our region and the global economy.
Please reigster for either or both lectures online.
