Center for Advanced Study & Research on Innovation Policy


Friday, July 22, 2016

To close the day-long Global Innovation Law Summit, we are pleased to announce that The Honorable Maria A. Pallante, U.S. Register of Copyrights and Director of the United States Copyright Office, will deliver the 2016 Distinguished Roger L. Shidler Lecture titled “From Monkey Selfies to Open Source: The Essential Interplay of Creative Culture, Technology, Copyright Office Practice, and the Law.”

The global technology revolution has transformed the authorship, distribution and performance of creative works and continues to affect every part of the copyright system. Sitting at the center of much of this, the U.S. Copyright Office navigates provocative, complex, and sometimes unsettled issues of law, including the scope of protection, joint authorship, exhaustion, attribution and duration. Register Pallante will discuss the dynamic state of the copyright marketplace and how the agency’s administrative practice both shapes, and is shaped by, the rule of law.
