Monday, 2 March, 5pm, CIEMAS, Schiciano Auditorium A.  Reception following the program.

Anthony Falzone, executive director of the Stanford Fair Use Project, will discuss fair use law and free expression using examples from recent litigation, including the highly publicized Harry Potter Lexicon (Rowling vs. RDR Books) and Barack Obama "HOPE" poster cases.
