The International Committee provides an international perspective on existing and developing law as it affects practice in the area of entertainment, the arts and sports, including consideration of how differences among jurisdictions can affect legal transactions and strategies.
The committee plans to collaborate with other committees within EASL, as well as the International Section and the Intellectual Property Section, in the development of programs highlighting the special issues arising in the context of international transactions. Topics under discussion include:
- The protection of designer names as trademarks internationally against the risk of bankruptcy
- The significance of the 2nd Circuit’s recent ruling on copyright exhaustion (the first sale rule) for publishing internationally and how it applies to electronic publishing
