Session Name: Linking, Embedding and Liability--The Evolving State of the Law
MeetingType: Chapter Meeting
Date: 03/14/18
Description: For years, the question of whether embedding images through in-line linking is copyright infringement seemed to have been settled in favor of allowing embedding. Then, a photographer raised the issue in a New York court, which just ruled in favor of finding that embedding violates the display right. The decision comes as a surprise to those who routinely embed or frame third-party works from social media; to lawyers, the ruling sets up a possible circuit split that may take the issue to the U.S. Supreme Court. Join us for a timely discussion on the practical and legal issues surrounding embedding, framing, and inline linking an issue that affects bloggers, re-tweeters, media outlets, and many more.
