PRESENTS A LECTURE ON

From Hypatia to Victor Hugo to Larry & Sergey:
All the World’s Knowledge and Universal Authors’ Rights

Access to ‘all the world’s knowledge’ is an ancient aspiration; a less venerable, but equally vigorous, universalism strives for the borderless protection of authors’ rights. Late 19th-century law and politics brought us copyright universalism; 21st-century technology may bring us the universal digital library, delivering  ‘all the world’s knowledge’ to users anywhere in the world. But how can the copyrights of those works remain enforceable?

ABOUT THE SHIDLER LECTURE SERIES

The Shidler Lecture Series is named after Roger L. Shidler (UW Law class of 1924), a founder of the law firm Shidler, McBroom, Gates & Lucas (now K&L Gates).  Through the years, the firm grew to become one of Seattle’s most vibrant and influential law practices.  To celebrate Roger Shidler’s legacy, this series brings outstanding academics, judges and practicing lawyers to UW Law to discuss leading issues in intellectual property law, an ever-more important economic driver for our region and the global economy.
