What Belongs in Copyright?

Liu, Joseph P.

Good morning. I want to start by thanking the organizers of this conference, the Kernochan Center, and Jane Ginsburg in particular for inviting me here to speak today. I was especially excited to be invited, not only because I attended this law school many years ago, but also because the subject of this conference is, in many ways, a copyright professor’s dream. As you may know, law professors love hypotheticals—the more outlandish the better. And here we have an entire conference devoted to considering not just hypotheticals, but real-life cases that stretch the outer boundaries of copyright and force us to confront some of the most basic principles in this area of the law. So to be able to spend an entire day with some very smart people talking about these cases is a real treat.
