Since World Intellectual Property Day is on April 26, it is a timely occasion for recognizing the vital role of copyright protections in encouraging innovation in the Digital Age. The strong protection of intellectual property in the Constitution and the Copyright Act has helped to make the U.S. the world's most prosperous society, and intellectual property protection of new technologies is particularly vital.

 

Meanwhile, the Supreme Court is set to weigh in on the copyrightability of software in what will be the biggest copyright case in several decades. The Court’s ruling in Google v. Oracle is expected to set the standard for how thoroughly computer code is protected by copyright. In this virtual panel, legal experts weigh in on the case and share their views on the constitutional foundations of intellectual property rights and current issues in copyright law.
