This session will provide an overview of copyright enforcement in the digital environment. After a few introductory remarks on the importance of enforcing IP and the development-oriented approach to enforcement taken by the World Intellectual Property Organization, it will take a closer look at the international legal framework governing the enforcement of copyright against online infringement.
The second part of the lecture will take a more practical approach and present the most common forms of online piracy, using high-profile cases as real-life examples. Finally, a variety of solutions will be examined that have been developed in recent years specifically to counter online piracy.

Current bills before the House and Senate can dramatically effect the state of patenting in the United States. As with the American Invents Act (AIA), touted to be a panacea to all but a bane to innovation, these bills, although directed at curing problems in the patent process, are being lobbied by big tech and others to instead further curtail the rights of U.S. inventors, particularly the small or independent inventor.
The first bill is the Patent Eligibility Restoration Act (PERA), which seeks to provide better clarity over patent subject matter eligibility under Section 101 of the Patent Act.
The second bill is the Promoting and Respecting Economically Vital American Innovation Leadership (PREVAIL) Act to reform practices of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) and promote fair treatment for inventors in these proceedings.
