We would like to invite you to a briefing featuring Jonathan Band, a renowned expert on US and international IPR law. Jonathan Band is deeply involved in the policy debate over the extent of openness and fair use on the Internet, as Google and others digitize printed information, and governments fund (and sometimes protect) publication of information that can then be duplicated online. His most recent publication is a law journal article titled "Google and Fair Use," in which he reviews developments in U.S. and European law regarding search engines, as well as the Google Books Library Project. Mr. Band’s recent talks can be viewed here: http://www.policybandwidth.com/presentations.html) Jonathan Band helps shape the US laws governing intellectual property and the Internet through a combination of legislative and appellate advocacy (Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA); database protection legislation; the Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act; and other statutes relating to copyrights, privacy, spam, cybersecurity, and indecency). Mr. Band’s policy practice has an international dimension as well. He has worked on the World Intellectual Property Organization’s Copyright Treaty; the Council of Europe’s Cybercrime Convention and Hate Speech Protocol; and the Hague Convention on Exclusive Choice of Court Agreements. He also has submitted comments concerning the revision of intellectual property laws in countries as diverse as Canada, Australia, Singapore, Korea, and Israel. The last-minute briefing is held on April, 1 – 3 pm at the AmCham office at Dušní 10. Please register online on www.amcham.cz under Member company’s password (upper right hand corner).
