    Roger L. Shidler Lecture Series

    2013 Speakers

    Professor Jane Ginsburg

    November 14, 2013


    Reception, 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
    Lecture, 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.


    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 Lecture Series

    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.

    William H. Gates Hall 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

    Please reigster for either or both lectures online.

  • “Roadblocks to Justice: How Courts Have Evaded Ruling on the Legality of the ‘War on Terror’”

    In 2006, a challenge to the NSA warrantless surveillance program was filed by an Islamic charity in southern Oregon, the Al Haramain Islamic Foundation. A ruling by U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker holding the government liable, and awarding over $2.5 million in damages and attorney fees, was ultimately overturned by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, finding that the government was immune from suit under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). Procedural defenses – state secrets privilege, sovereign immunity, qualified immunity, lack of standing – have repeatedly been used to insulate the government from suits challenging some of the government’s most egregious programs from warrantless surveillance to rendition to the use of drones to detentions at Guantanamo Bay. What viable strategies can be used to allow challenges to such programs to proceed?
