When should Internet companies be liable for copyright infringement by their users? No question is so important to today’s Internet economy, nor so controversial. Please join us at the April luncheon where Mitch Stoltz, Senior Staff Attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation will review recent decisions, particularly around Section 512 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and lead a discussion of where copyright liability for Internet companies might go next.


Mitch Stoltz (Electronic Frontier Foundation) is a Senior Staff Attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Mitch works on cases where free speech and innovation collide with copyright and trademark law. His current projects include improving the legal environment for mobile software developers and tinkerers, fighting the use of copyright as a tool for censorship, litigation on the copyright status of mandatory safety codes, and legal analysis in the field of Internet television and video. Mitch also counsels clients on Internet video technology and open source software licensing.

Mitch has a JD from Boston University and a BA in Public Policy and Computer Science from Pomona College, where he co-founded the student TV station Studio 47. When not working, he can be found tinkering with electronics or chasing new levels of suffering on a bicycle.
