Professor Shubha Ghosh to Present Paper on Copyright in Legal Materials at NFOIC Summit
Professor Shubha Ghosh's paper "Liberating Government’s Materials: Removing Copyright Obstacles to Transparency" was a winning paper in a recent National Freedom of Information Summit Coalition (NFOIC) competition. Ghosh will present his work during the NFOIC virtual summit on Sept. 30, 2020, at 5 p.m.
"My paper is an analysis of the recent US Supreme Court decision in State of Georgia v Public.Resources.org in which the Court held that the State could not hold a copyright in its authorized annotated code," explains Ghosh. "The paper explains the decision and examines how its reasoning extends to administrative and other government materials."
