There is some type of symposium on DRM at UC Hastings law school this Friday. There's almost no info online about it. It's in Room A of the 198 McAllister Street building.
I found this blurb about it at:
Mr. Nguyen's panel will discuss the current state of the law surrounding the use of digital rights management solutions and the anti-circumvention provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. The panel will also focus on the issues related to interoperability and competition recently discussed in the Lexmark, Chamberlain, and Corley cases. Panel members will cover what facts should give rise to findings that a consumer or competitor has violated the DMCA in circumventing DRM, and what facts should give rise to a finding that DRM is being employed anti-competitively to support a defense of copyright misuse (or proposed DMCA misuse) or a counter-claim of violation of antitrust laws.
Other participants in the symposium include representatives from California Lawyers for the Arts, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the San Francisco Bay Guardian newspaper.
