Jane Ginsburg on “From Humor to Eternity: The Reciprocal Relationship of Copyright & Trademark Law”
April 5, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm$20 - $25
From the CSUSA Website:
“Professor Jane Ginsburg will address:
*How the US copyright fair use doctrine has allowed US federal judges in trademarks cases to connect with their inner comic impulses.
*The conflict between trademark law’s potentially eternal duration and copyright’s constitutionally mandated limited times, particularly in the context of visual characters such as Mickey Mouse.
*The refashioning of trademark symbols into copyrighted characters.
