For the copyright nerds in DC -
On 8 November 2010, the DC Chapter of the Copyright Society of the USA is sponsoring a program called “Supreme Court Confidential – Costco Wholesale Corp. v. Omega”. Attendees will hear a post-argument recap from people involved in the case. Costco Wholesale Corp v. Omega considers copyright’s distribution and importation rights and the first sale doctrine, and is predicted to be one of the most important copyright decisions of the year.
The event will take place at George Washington University Law School. Students and government attorneys are free. For more information, and to register, see the DC Chapter events page.
