VIDEO: Separating Rights from Wrongs: The #Ethics of Enforcement @theCSUSA #copyright

On September 24 2014 the Copyright Society of the USA’s New York Chapter presented a luncheon panel – If I Ran The Zoo: Probing The Contours Of “The Next Great Copyright Act” – at the Princeton Club in NYC. Katie Lachter, partner at Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP, ran through the ethical issues that arise when a lawyer is enforcing IP rights for a client, receiving a cease-and-desist letter in a client matter, and when she or he is aware that a client may be infringing a third party’s copyright. The program also touched on how social media plays a role in attorney conduct when representing copyright owners and users for enforcement matters. Also mentioned was abusive domain litigation.
