About the Program: 

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.

The program will provide one NY and PA CLE credit.
