Don't Miss It! CMLP's April 9th Conference

Just a quick reminder that there's still time to register for CMLP's spring conference, which is coming up this Friday, April 9.  Entitled "Journalism’s Digital Transition: Unique Legal Challenges and Opportunities," the program will bring together panels of academics, legal practitioners, and journalists. Topics include:

  • Saving Journalism from Itself? Hot News, Copyright Fair Use and News Aggregation
  • Building and Managing Online Communities — Anonymity, Defamation and Privacy, Oh My!
  • The Future of Journalism: Law and Ethics in a Changing Media Ecosystem

Details on the panel are available here; be sure to check them out because we've got some fascinating panelists coming.  In addition to the panels, Harvard Law School Professor and Berkman Center Faculty Co-Director Jonathan Zittrain will be the lunch speaker, and Joshua Benton of Nieman Journalism Lab will be the dinner speaker. (Note: the speakers for lunch and dinner switched from what we previously publicized due to a scheduling change.)

For more information or to register, please go to the conference website: We have a limited number of free and reduced-fee registrations for academics, public interest attorneys, and students.  Please contact OMLN staff attorney Kimberley Isbell for details about reduced-fee registrations.
