Christopher A. Meyer passionately believed in the rights of authors to both control the commercial exploitation of their expression and to draw from the expressions of others when creating new works.  After Mr. Meyer’s death in 1999, the firm Meyer, Klipper & Mohr, PLLC established a lecture series for prominent practitioners and academics to set forth their views on current trends in copyright law and related issues. The Copyright Society of the USA and its Washington DC Chapter and George Washington Law School are proud to sponsor this series in cooperation with the U.S. Copyright Office.

Scott Turow is a writer and attorney. He is the author of eleven bestselling works of fiction, including Presumed Innocent, the sequel Innocent, and most recently Testimony. He has also published two nonfiction books, including One L, about his experience as a law student. His books have been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than thirty million copies worldwide, and have been adapted into movies and television projects.
