On March 30th, the Intellectual Property Colloquium welcomed Professor Dotan Oliar, Class of 1966 Research Professor of Law at the University of Virginia School of Law, to discuss one of his works-in-progress. Professor Oliar's paper is entitled "Copyright Registrations: Who, What, When, Where, and Why." In it, Professor Oliar discusses the results of an empirical study that addresses the current patterns of copyright registration. He hopes that his findings will aid lawmakers in critically evaluating the effect of copyright law on creation and will further aid in copyright reform.
The Intellectual Property Colloquium is a seminar course in which visiting speakers come to St. John's to present their in-progress research and discuss it with St. John's students and faculty. Learn more about studying IP at St. John's.
