The Meyer Memorial Lecture

The untimely death of Chris Meyer was a loss to the copyright bar and a tragedy to those that knew him.  He passionately believed in the rights of authors both to be able to control the commercial exploitation of their expression, and to draw from others in creating new works.  After his death in 1999, the firm established a lecture series in his name in which prominent practitioners and academics have set forth their views on current trends in copyright law and related issues.  If you would like to be placed on the invitation list, please contact us.
