Ann Okerson's Intro Slides

Madelyn Wessel's Slides
Georgia Harper's Slides

In this session, we will offer "something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue."  You decide which is which!  We will hear from legal experts about topics such as: the Supreme Court's decision at the end of March 2013 in the Kirtsaeng case; the various spillovers arising from the U.S. Department of Justice antitrust enforcement action against Apple and various e-book publishers for price fixing, including substantial settlement(s), subject to court approval; an intellectual property overview focused particularly on MOOCs; and a close look at some seemingly shifting (over time) court views about fair use, particularly transformative uses.  All of these have been much in the news and as usual, we will have some of the most informed and library-savvy presenters on these topics.
