South Hall 1415

This seminar will provide a brief overview of copyright law with an eye toward digital media and technologies. The “basics” of U.S. copyright law will be covered, as well as the recent Digital Millennium Copyright Act. We will examine the difficulties and controversy surrounding the evolution of “digital copyright” law. If time permits, additional interesting topics such as open source software licensing, digital piracy, and new media (e.g., wiki’s) will be explored.

Ryan was previously associated with a large international law firm, where he practiced intellectual property litigation and patent counseling and prosecution, focusing on software and digital technologies. He also advises clients regarding open source software development and licensing, CAN-SPAM compliance, and digital music copyright issues. Ryan holds degrees from UCLA and Stanford University.
