    12:00 PM PIPG/ CTIC Lunchtime Speaker: Haochen Sun
    Copyright and the Public Interest: A Tale of Two Digital Library Litigations

    Abstract:

    This talk will examine the best ways to promote the public interest through copyright law by comparing the recent litigations over the Google Library Project in the United States and China. The U.S. courts ruled that the Google Library Project was fair use. By contrast, the Chinese courts ruled against Google, holding that its Library Project did not constitute fair use. In the talk, Professor Sun will consider why the U.S. and Chinese courts have made these conflicting judicial opinions. He will further use this comparative study to show that the construction of both legal and cultural infrastructures is essential for promoting the public interest in copyright law.

    Lunch will be served. Please RSVP below to be counted for the meal.
