Professor Ruth L. Okediji Delivered the 8th Annual Peter A. Jaszi Distinguished Lecture on Intellectual Property at the Washington College of Law, American University, where she called for a new paradigm of thinking about the relationship between copyright and the public interest.

Some questions came after her lecture: Should copyright legislation look for exceptions and limitations outside of its own system?  as antitrust law can create a counterweight for corporate law, should the solution of copyright be found in constitutional law or other fields of law? or should we just not try to make a single market out of the copyright laws? or shall we just keep the exceptions and limitations for every country? can we create a system that will work fluently without constant blocks on the road? Those are some of the everlasting questions about limitations and exceptions in the copyright arena being addressed from a different perspective.
