Copyright expert and scholar David Nimmer will discuss current developments in U.S. copyright law and how they are pushing us in unanticipated directions when he delivers the annual Frey Lecture. Among other matters, he will explore the potential for the Supreme Court's 2013 decision in Kirtsaeng to upset a large body of jurisprudence, and whether "The Cloud" might push the law in the opposite direction. Nimmer, of counsel to Irell & Manella LLP in Los Angeles, also serves as Professor from Practice at University of California, Los Angeles Law School and Distinguished Scholar at the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology. He is the author of the foundational reference treatise, "Nimmer on Copyright." Bag lunch will be provided, first come, first served.
