"The Future of Copyright Law" is an ambitious symposium bringing together scholars from the United States to discuss the future of copyright law, through competing predictions, visions, and even warnings about the likely evolution of copyright law in the United States and around the world.

This conference will be of interest to lawyers, authors, artists, musicians, journalists, computer software writers, and anyone with an interest in learning about copyright law.
