This Thursday! Looting and the Plunder of Cultural Heritage at the National Arts Club - NYC



Girl With Black Hair (Egon Schiele 1911) - Stolen From Fritz Grunbaum, Now at Oberlin College

Looting and the Plunder of Cultural Heritage

Thursday, February 26
6:15 PM
       
Looting is one of the major problems encountered throughout the art world.   We present a panel composed of three eminent attorneys discussing this topic from a variety of perspectives. They include Professor Lucille A. Roussin of the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, Colonel Matthew Bogdanos of the New York District Attorney’s Office, and National Arts Club Board member Raymond Dowd.   Treated will be the unique problems faced by source nations in reclaiming their glorious treasures, the United Nations 1970 Convention governing ownership of excavated finds, determination of provenance when required information remains lacking, Holocaust restitution in relationship to the international arena in which politics often intervene, continuing cultural catastrophe represented by the illegal trade in purloined artifacts which fund terrorism and support ISIS, and whether or not excessive tax breaks accorded to individuals donating stolen antiquities without any meaningful oversight be necessarily warranted.   
   The question of looting, its concomitant consequences, and oftentimes difficult resolution are complex.   Join us and become enlightened about these subjects with a better understanding of the diverse issues involved. 

A reception will follow at 7:30, at which “Thieves of Baghdad” by Colonel Bogdanos will be available for purchase.

Cravath Partners and Columbia Law Feature Copyright Litigation Handbook In Innovative Copyright Dispute Course

Raymond J. Dowd


My attorney editor Elizabeth Stull has published a wonderful post here on the Legal Solutions Blog about the Columbia Copyright  Dispute Resolution Externship at Columbia Law School and how the professors enjoy using my Copyright Litigation Handbook as a teaching tool.

Cravath partner David Marriott said that Copyright Litigation Handbook is "a very helpful guide to the practical, and very useful."

When I wrote Copyright Litigation Handbook, my hope and vision was that a busy legal practitioner would be able to keep one small book within easy reach for quick consultation, whether in an office, a conference room, or in a courtroom.   When trying a copyright case before Judge Denny Chin in the Southern District of New York, I found that I needed to quickly pull out rules and cases on procedural and evidentiary points and that there was no place to find the information.

I am gratified to see that Copyright Litigation Handbook is working well for the instructors and students of Columbia Law School.   If your law school or alma mater would like to use Copyright Litigation Handbook, please don't hesitate to give me a call.

Please visit Elizabeth's full post here.  Thanks to David for the kind words!
