Mashup/Remix Conference 2009
I/S: A Journal of Law and Policy for the Information Society symposium
Listen to a novel discussion on the implications of mashup and remix in the world of Web 2.0.

Bringing together new media artists, prominent academics, and influential members of the media community, this event will discuss ways in which the digitization of music, film, and visual art over the Internet is influencing the future of these industries and the future of copyright law.

Never Say No: The Law, Economics, and Psychology of Counteroffers
Schwartz Lecture on Dispute Resolution
Ian Ayres, the prominent lawyer and economist, will present the 2009 Schwartz Lecture entitled “Never Say No: The Law, Economics and Psychology of Counteroffers.” He is the William K. Townsend Professor at Yale Law School.
Professor Ayres lectures and writes about the intersection of law and economics and negotiation of contracts. Ayres’ lecture will extend his economic analysis to the issue of negotiation counteroffers. He explains, “the law of counteroffers turns out to be a rare kind of double-jointed default. The economics of counteroffers is also surprising in that offerees are the first people in the universe to know whether or not there are gains of trade. And the law can usefully channel different offerees toward accepting or counteroffering. Finally, the psychology of counteroffers suggests that offerees too often choose to reject offers rather than exploring the possibility of a jointly maximizing deal.” For more information, visit http://moritzlaw.osu.edu/programs/adr/schwartz/index.php
