Partner Susan J. Kohlmann will be a panelist at an upcoming New York City Bar event titled, “Clicking Refresh: A New Look at Fair Use in the Digital Age,” to be held on October 7. The panel will address the ways in which copyright law’s fair use doctrine has evolved (or may be tested) in an era in which the rise of news aggregation, social networking, and a variety of other websites increasingly allow internet users to combine and transform content from endless sources of media.

Ms. Kohlmann is Chair of the Firm’s Unfair Competition, False Advertising and Lanham Act Practice and is a member of the member of Litigation Department and Creative Content Practices. Ms. Kohlmann is an experienced commercial litigator with extensive trial experience in state and federal courts as well as arbitration proceedings. She has handled and tried a variety of complex litigation matters, including, among other things, copyright, trademark and trade secret disputes. In addition, Ms. Kohlmann serves as Chair of the New York City Bar’s Committee to Enhance Diversity, and is also a member of the Board of Legal Momentum and New York Lawyers for the Public Interest.
