Horace S. Manges Lecture: Litigating Fair Use by Dale Cendali

Kirkland partner Dale Cendali will deliver the prestigious Horace S. Manges Lecture on March 25, 2024 at Jerome Greene Hall at Columbia Law School in New York City.

Dale will discuss the litigators' role in shaping the legal doctrine by developing the facts of a given case and establishing its ties to existing law. She will conclude with some brief thoughts on current issues in litigating fair use, including the increased focus on the second factor, the greater attention now being paid to the role of juries in deciding fair use and how artificial intelligence is affecting the legal landscape.

Past lectures have been delivered by such copyright luminaries as Hons. Pierre N. Leval (2d Cir.) and Margaret McKeown (9th Cir.), as well as several other prominent jurists; Hon. Maria A. Pallante (former Register of Copyrights, now CEO of Association of American Publishers); Hon. Marybeth Peters (long-time Register of Copyrights); best-selling author Brad Meltzer; and Dr. Francis Gurry (former Director General of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)).
