It’s become a bit of a cliché nowadays, that those in the copyright maximalist gig can’t tell the truth on anything .Their studies are filled with bogus claims, their press releases are questionable, and the DMCA notices they spew out seem to best be described as following a Spray and Pray strategy.
Until now though, they’ve at least been able to fall back on their events to be fairly factual, at least in the organization. That could now be going out the door as Friday Vanderbilt University in Tennessee hosts a copyright panel.
Five international experts will discuss the current state of copyright law Oct. 24 at an open forum at Vanderbilt Law School. “Is Copyright Working for Songwriters and Composers? A Global Panel at Vanderbilt Law School” will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. in Flynn Auditorium at the law school, located at 131 21st Ave. S.
