Call For Papers

New Media and Old Metaphors Symposium. NSU Law, in conjunction with the Nova Law Review, and NSU Sports and Entertainment Law Society will organize the 2015 annual Nova Law Symposium February 12-13, 2015. The focus of the conference is 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 similar areas.

The two-day conference will feature an academic symposium of Thursday, February 12th sponsored by the Nova Law Review and a practice-oriented workshop hosted by SELS on Friday, February 13th. Thursday evening will feature a hosted event showcasing South Florida’s thriving arts, entertainment, and sports community.

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. Interdisciplinary presentations are encouraged. Authors and presenters are invited to submit proposals on topics relating to the theme, which may include such topics these:

First Amendment and Defamation

Evolving Technologies

Copyright at the Crossroads

Artists, Creators, Athletes and Actors

Other Issues
