Mark Rose (Professor Emeritus of English, UCSB), who has served as an expert witness in many movie-related law cases, will discuss the history and role of the expert in copyright litigation. Focusing on the classic Hollywood case of Nichols v.

A reception will be held after Dr. Rose's 3pm talk from 4-5pm in the King Hall Courtyard.
