Conference Program

Tuesday, September 13, 2022

Fordham University School of Law

Copyright and Technology 2022 is the latest in a series of conferences that focus on the dramatic and fast-moving influences that technology has on copyright in the digital age. We are the unique forum where technologists, attorneys, media industry people, and public policy decision makers get together in the same room for intelligent dialog over current hot topics related to copyright and technology.

The Copyright and Technology Conference will provide Continuing Legal Education (CLE) or Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits for Arizona, California, New Jersey, New York, Ontario, and Pennsylvania. The amount of CLE credit that may be obtained through electronic delivery varies by state.  Instructions for verifying attendance will be emailed to registrants prior to the program.
