In the Fall of 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear the case of Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Inc. v. Lynn Goldsmith, et. al., a case poised to alter the bedrock of fair use jurisprudence across the board. In this 1.5 hr. CLE program, ASMP General Counsel & Head of National Content and Education Thomas Maddrey will dive deep into this case, examining the winding path it took through the lower courts, describing the arguments girding each side’s position, and discussing how the Supreme Court, and its newest justices, may make statements on seemingly small points that will have far-reaching implications. 

Maddrey is no stranger to this matter having written an amicus brief supporting Goldsmith when the case was heard in the 2nd Circuit, and is currently authoring an amicus brief supporting Goldsmith in support of her position in front of the Supreme Court. 

This is an opportunity to not only examine the record, but also go behind-the-scenes into the myriad real-world consequences of any decision the Court may make both on creators and copyright owners as well as copyright users.
