Litigating Copyright Claims: Recent Developments and Practical Tips

Wednesday, September 21

This informative seminar will provide an update on recent developments in copyright law. It will focus on federal court cases in New York that highlight the:

  • increased use of motions to dismiss in copyright cases
  • appropriate use of expert witnesses in copyright cases
  • elements of "useful articles" that may be copyrightable
  • analysis of substantial similarity in a variety of contexts

In addition, this program will also provide practical tips on important litigation issues, including the threshold for establishing originality; the use of discovery to prove or disprove access; the use of "prior art" in evaluating probative and substantial similarity; and the proof necessary for an award of "indirect profits."
