Google v. Oracle: An Initial Appraisal

April 20, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free
Tuesday, April 20, 2021
1:00 – 2:00 PM Pacific

On April 5, the Supreme Court handed down its much-anticipated decision in one of the most consequential copyright cases of our time, Google v. Oracle. In ruling that fair use permitted Google to incorporate elements of the Java API into its software for the Android phone, the Court clarified standards not only for fair use as applied to software but also arguably for other copyrighted works as well.

Our assessment of this momentous decision will be led by Profs. Peter Menell and Pamela Samuelson. In addition to filing amicus briefs in the case, they have written extensively about it and the broader issues of software copyright. They will be joined by Supreme Court advocate Tom Goldstein, who argued the case for Google, and by Prof. Sean O’Connor of the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University.

Panel:

Tom Goldstein, Goldstein & Russell, P.C.
Peter Menell, UC Berkeley School of Law, BCLT
Sean O’Connor, George Mason University, Antonin Scalia Law School
Pam Samuelson, UC Berkeley School of Law, BCLT

This event is free. CA MCLE credit will be provided.
