"Aereo and Copyright's Public Performance Right" presented by the Kernochan Center for Law, Media and the Arts

Start/End Tuesday, March 04, 2014 12:15 PM EST -- 01:00 PM EST
Location Name JGH 102B

Aereo retransmits copyrighted TV programs to its paid subscribers over the internet. Some courts have held that because Aereo assigns each of its users an individual mini-antenna, its activities don’t infringe the TV networks’ public performance rights. The Supreme Court recently accepted cert. in one of the several Aereo cases pending in the lower courts.

Speakers: Jeffrey Cunard, Debevoise & Plimpton LLP and Jason M. Schultz, NYU School of Law

This event is part of the Kernochan Center's Spring IP Speaker Series.
