Use on Scholarship and Free Expression"

Date: Monday, March 2, 2009
Time: 5:00 pm
Location: Schiciano Auditorium A, Fitzpatrick CIEMAS building, Duke
Reception to follow

You are invited to an upcoming lecture on Monday, March 2, at 5:00 p.m.
by Anthony Falzone, the Executive Director of Stanford University*s
Fair Use Project. It will take place in Schiciano Auditorium A, in Duke
University's Fitzpatrick CIEMAS building.

As Executive Director of Stanford University's Fair Use Project,
Anthony Falzone has fought to clarify, and extend, the boundaries of
"fair use" in order to enhance creative and academic freedom.
Mr. Falzone has been involved in several fascinating and high-profile
fair use cases, including the current lawsuit seeking a ruling that
artist Shepard Fairey's iconic Barack Obama HOPE poster is protected by
the fair use doctrine and does not infringe copyrights asserted by the
Associated Press in a news photograph of Obama. Mr. Falzone also
represented the publishers of the Harry Potter Lexicon in the highly
publicized lawsuit by J.K. Rowling, successfully defended Professor
Carol Shloss's right to use copyrighted materials in connection with her
scholarly biography of Lucia Joyce, and vindicated the right to use a
short fragment from the John Lennon song "Imagine" in the controversial
documentary "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed."
