A series of significant fair use decisions are changing the landscape of fair use. The Google Books case, Cariou v. Prince, Lenz vs. Universal Music, SOFA Entertainment, Inc. v. Dodger Productions, Inc., Authors Guild v HathiTrust, Cambridge University Press et al. v. Patton et al (the "Georgia State case). and many others are having a significant impact on the future of copyright. What do these many cases mean for authors, copyright owners, reusers, and the public. Has fair use gone too far or not far enough? Should we revive the copyright misuse defense?

On February 27, 2014, a panel of copyright experts explored the issues in an interactive discussion:

Christopher Bavitz, Managing Director of Harvard Law School's Cyberlaw Clinic, based at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society and Clinical Instructor and Lecturer on Law at HLS
Glenn Pudelka, Counsel, Edwards Wildman
Jessica Silbey, Professor, Suffolk University Law School
Moderator: Mark A. Fischer, Partner, Duane Morris
