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.)

We have a limited number of free and reduced-fee registrations for academics, public interest attorneys, and students.
