The U.S. House of Representatives has introduced the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA)—the counterpart to the Senate’s PROTECT IP Act. The bill proposes to expand criminal penalties for copyright infringement and give the government (and private parties) new powers to block access to websites accused of facilitating infringement. Panelists will discuss and debate whether these provisions promote the public interest in copyright law and policy.

Presented by the Program on Information Justice and Intellectual Property and the International Trade and Investment Law Society
