Nova Law Review Symposium 2015

Nova Law Review Symposium 2015- New Media and Old Metaphors

NSU Shepard Broad Law Center, in conjunction with the Nova Law Review and NSU Sports and Entertainment Law Society (SELS), will present the 2015 Symposium “New Media and Old Metaphors” on February 12 & 13, 2015.

The two-day conference will feature an academic symposium on Thursday, February 12th sponsored by the Nova Law Review and a practice-oriented workshop hosted by SELS on Friday, February 13th.

Social media, new distribution models, wearable electronics, Internet-of-Things electronics, sharable 3D print programs, and other technological changes require artists, industry, courts, and legislatures to rethink the ways laws once designed for daily print newspapers and burlesque houses apply in the modern age. The symposium is an opportunity for academics, practitioners, consultants, and students to exchange ideas and explore emerging issues of law, policy, and economic enterprise.

The academic conference will feature faculty and attorneys from around the globe and throughout the U.S. to provide an interdisciplinary review of issues involving business and industry responses to the transformative impact of new media on traditional entertainment and media, including journalism, sports, film, broadcast, gaming, music, and advertising.

Presentations delivered at the symposium will be published by the Nova Law Review.
