Part of the Copyright Office Presents series, “The Enduring Copyright Legacy of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg" will highlight the Supreme Court Justice’s unique and lasting influence on copyright, from her notable opinions impacting copyright law and policy to the inspiration she’s given creators of copyright-protected works, including movies, books, operas, and more.
Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden and Register of Copyrights and Director of the U.S. Copyright Office Shira Perlmutter will give opening remarks.
The event will feature a conversation between Paul Goldstein, Stella W. and Ira S. Lillick Professor of Law at Stanford Law School, and Jane Ginsburg, Morton L. Janklow Professor of Literary and Artistic Property Law at Columbia Law School, on Justice Ginsburg’s jurisprudence.
Julie Cohen and Betsy West, codirectors and coproducers of the documentary film RBG, and Derrick Wang, composer and librettist of the opera Scalia/Ginsburg, will then discuss how Justice Ginsburg inspired their own copyright-protected works.
