Dear All:

We (RISCS, Hariri) have been recently trying to connect with BU's law
school in an effort to create a common body of knowledge and research on
the many points where law and technology, and in particular law and
computer security, meet.
As part of these efforts,  we have decided to start a "brown bag lunch"
series where faculty from one side of the divide tell about their research
to faculty on the other side of the divide...

The first meeting in this series will be held at the Hariri seminar room
this monday at 12:30pm. Professor Stacey Dogan from the law school will
give an informal presentation about her research.  See details below. You
are all invited!

Ran

(PS: The next meeting will take place on 11/21 at the law school - Sharon
Goldberg will  talk about her research. You're all welcome to come and
cheerlead.  Sha  Sha Sha!)

Intellectual Property Rights and Online Intermediaries:  Policies,
Principles, and Evolving Legal Rules.

Stacey Dogan, BU Law School

>From the early days of the Internet, courts and Congress have grappled with
the extent to which online intermediaries should face liability for
infringement committed on their networks.  After two decades of litigation
and legislation, the law has moved toward a rough equilibrium, but
questions remain.  This talk will first offer a brief introduction to
copyright and trademark law, and then will describe the history and current
state of the law relating to intermediary liability.  It will focus on both
doctrinal and policy issues, and will explore the tension between
protecting IP interests, on the one hand, and enabling unfettered
technological development and non-infringing uses of mixed-use
technologies, on the other.
