Welcome Remarks (9:30-9:45 AM)

Matthew Diller, Dean and Paul Fuller Professor of Law, Fordham Law School

Offline: The Intersection Between Data and Cyber Civil Rights (9:45-10:45 AM)

  • Ari E. Waldman, Professor of Law and Computer Science and Faculty Director, Center for Law, Information and Creativity (CLIC), Northeastern University

The Offline: The Intersection Between Data and Cyber Civil Rights panel will explore the intersection between data/privacy rights and marginalized communities. Minority communities are severely impacted by changes in the data and privacy landscape, yet are not mentioned enough in discussion. Additionally, communities victimized by nonconsensual pornography and other cyber crimes have been underrepresented. Panelists will discuss the current laws and landscape affecting Black and Brown communities, as well as privacy issues affecting women and LGBTQ+ individuals.

Copycat Culture: The Copying of BIPOC Creations and Fashion Law (11:00 AM-12:00 PM)

  • Marcela Bolland González, Partner, Uhthoff, Gómez Vega & Uhthoff Sc
  • Susan Scafidi, Academic Director, Fashion Law Institute, Fordham University School of Law (Moderator)

 

The Copycat Culture: The Copying of BIPOC Creations and Fashion Law panel will focus on fashion and social justice, specifically relating to fashion brands appropriating other culture’s traditions or dress. Some fashion brands have come under fire for launching clothing and accessories lines that have copied other culture’s products. The discussion will center around who really owns these art forms and the protection of these art forms by intellectual property law. Panelists will also discuss how the existing legal framework affects marginalized communities.

 

Keynote Speaker (12:15-1:00 PM)

Theresa Conduah, Partner, Hayes & Boone LLP

 

Color of Music: A Discussion on Race, Music, and Intellectual Property Rights (1:15-2:15 PM)

  • Aditi Bagchi, Professor of Law, Fordham University School of Law (Moderator)

 

The Color of Music: A Discussion on Race, Music, and Intellectual Property Rights panel will explore issues relating to diverse communities, music, and intellectual property rights. The conflict between minority music artists and intellectual property continues to persist. Additionally, indengenious voices and sound recordings have prompted questions surrounding ownership interests. Panelists will explore these issues and the application of intellectual property law affecting minority communities. The discussion will also explore the role contracting has with minority artists.
