Advanced Copyright Law gives students who have had some introduction to copyright the opportunity to focus in detail on particular "hot topics" in copyright law. Students hone their research and writing skills in addition and produce a scholarly paper. For 2010 topics include: the Google Books settlement, peer-to-peer file sharing, performance royalties for sound recordings, proposals to amend the Copyright Act for preservation of digital works, to change the statutory damages provisions, to reinstitute some of the formalities of copyright by tying them to available remedies rather than to perfection of the copyright, and whether the display right should be eliminated.
