What happens to works when they fall into the public domain?"
"What happens to works when they fall into the public domain?" The 1709 Blog is delighted to confirm that theseminar on this question, which it trailed here, now has a venue. To refresh memories, the speaker is blog team member Jeremy's friend, Professor Paul J. Heald, of the University of Georgia Law School, who presents some of his thoughts and -- more importantly -- the fruits of some of his own research.
The date of the seminar is Wednesday 23 March and it will be hosted in the lovely, airy room up on the sixth seventh floor of Olswang LLP's offices at 90 High Holborn, London. Registration begins at 5pm; the seminar starts at 5.30pm and, following questions and discussion, will end by 7pm. Refreshments will be provided.
Admission to this seminar is free. To register, email Jeremy here and let him know (using the subject line 'Heald Reg').
