Fair Use in the Digital Age

Two Philly-area filmmakers are coming to Pittsburgh on Monday, April 26 to present "Fair Use in the Digital Age," a film about copyright issues in the new information environment. The film is supposed to be very good (as well as provocative). It will be showing at the Warhol Museum, at 12:15 p.m. on the 26th.

Admission is steep--$150 for professionals, $75 for students, paralegals and judges. Although the film is open to the public, the target audience for the showing is the legal community, and downtown lawyers in particular. These are the folks who need both the continuing education credits that are being offered, and (more important) the different perspective on copyright law that the film presents. (They are also most likely to be downtown in the middle of the day. The Pirates play at home that day, by the way, but it's a night game.)

If you'd simply like to buy a copy of the film for $50, go to willfulinfringement.com.
