Presenter: Kenneth Norwick, Lawyer and Author of The Legal Guide for Writers, Artists and Other Creative People

The Legal Guide for Writers and Other Creative PeopleKenneth NorwickWhen is your (unauthorized) use of copyrighted content 'fair use" and when is it copyright infringement? In this one-hour webinar, Ken Norwick, a lawyer and author of The Legal Guide for Writers, Artists and Other Creative People, will discuss several important pending cases, including the case challenging the practice of public universities in Georgia of including without license excerpts from textbooks in student course-packs and the case in the District of Columbia asking whether privately-created standards and procedures that are incorporated into government regulations can be owned by the private creators or become "public domain" when they effectively become "law." Norwick will discuss the arguments on both sides of these cases and the reasoning of the previous court decisions in them. He will also offer some suggestions that authors can follow when deciding whether and how to use the copyrighted works of others.


Kenneth Norwick has been a practicing lawyer and a leading authority on intellectual property, communications, and First Amendment law for more than four decades. He is the author of several books on legal and related subjects, including most recently, The Legal Guide for Writers, Artists and Other Creative People, published in 2017. He has served as an Adjunct Professor of Law at New York Law School, teaching Publishing Law, and has taught and lectured widely and appeared on many radio and television programs. He is a consultant to (and former official of) the American Civil Liberties Union.
