-------
The Scope of "Derivative Works" as Applied to Software: David Bender of White
& Case LLP and author of Computer Law and Ieuan Mahony of Holland & Knight
LLP will argue the proper scope of "derivative work" under U.S. copyright law
when applied to software, before a panel of distinguished federal appellate
judges:

* HONORABLE WILLIAM C. BRYSON, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit
* HONORABLE HALDANE ROBERT MAYER, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit
* HONORABLE MARGARET MCKEOWN, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit
-------

BTW, there were a whole bunch of remarkable remarks from judges.

Like "what is a license if not a contract", "the real word issue" of
preemption, "intent" is not really helpful, etc. etc.

Hth.

(Give all that stuff to your lawyer.)

alexander.
