RIAA Litigation Brown Bag Lunch

September 30, 2010

12:00pm - 1:00pm

Room 355


In March 2007, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the trade association representing major record labels, announced a litigation strategy under which it files, or threatens to file civil lawsuits against individual college students it believes are trafficking in unlicensed music. This strategy supplemented a broader strategy in which the RIAA has sued or threatened to sue more than 30,000 individuals for illegal downloading.

The handful of cases that have reached the courthouse have raised a number of interesting issues about the scope of the Fair Use Privilege under 17 U.S.C. ? 107, duties of ISPs under the DMCA, abuse of civil subpoenas, and the psychology of compliance with copyright law.

Steve Scovil, a third year law student, is writing his paper for Professor Perritt's Seminar in Entertainment Law this semester in the form of a screenplay which dramatizes some of the human conflicts the RIAA litigation strategy had engendered. Mr. Scovil and Professor Perritt will present aspects of his screenplay as a foundation for discussion of its characters, plot lines, and the underlying legal issues.

Space is limited for this event. An RSVP to IPLS is required.
