On April 24, 2012, SDCF hosted entertainment attorney Neil Rosini, of Franklin, Weinrib, Vassallo, and Rudell, to speak about how artists can use existing work to create new work without infringing on copyright. Rosini paints a clear picture of the nature of rights under copyright. He covers reproduction, adaptation, distribution, public performance, and public display. Other topics include the infringement of copyright and the fair use defense. Rosini also covers how to test for transformativeness when working on parody. This conversation provides a thorough overview of the in's and out's of copyright law. (Mr. Rosini wishes to note that the references to CNN midway through the program should be to C-SPAN.)
