Harvard Professor Ruth L. Okediji gives lecture in the 8th Annual Peter A. Jaszi Distinguished Lecture

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.
