Presented by Ryan Roemer
Monday, October 16th, 2006
4:15 – 6:15PM
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 Roemer is a graduate student in Computer Science at UCSD. He is also a patent attorney and registered to practice in California and before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. 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.

New Transcriptions Forum

In addition to this unofficial blog, Transcriptions is now experimenting with an unofficial online forum – for use, for example, in Transcriptions-affiliated courses like English 10LCI. The developing forum may be accessed here.

As always, comments and suggestions regarding this idea and its potential application are very welcome.
