Ray Dowd, author of West's acclaimed Copyright Litigation Handbook and a partner at Dunnington Bartholow & Miller LLP in New York City and Glen McMurry, a distinguished litigator at Dungan and LeFevre in Dayton, Ohio will take us through the surprisingly complex rules of evidence.

The object of taking discovery is to gather admissible evidence sufficient to sustain your client's burden on the case- but how do you get the evidence admitted?

Just what is relevant evidence? The first three rules of Article IV of the Federal Rules of Evidence govern the lion's share of evidentiary disputes in copyright litigation. What exactly is hearsay, and when is it admissible in court in copyright litigation? And how do you get hearsay into evidence- or what is an exception to the hearsay rule? Tune in to this week's CLE to find all these answers and more.

How can you use motions in limine to include or exclude evidence in advance of trial? What does Rule 408 of the Federal Rules of Evidence exclude evidence of settlement negotiations?  When is a good time to use a trial or bench memorandum to preserve your objection for the record- especially to avoid judges' hostility to objections? There have been many developments in the Federal Rules of Evidence when it comes to copyright litigation, tune into this CLE to understand how they can affect you.

 Dowd's Copyright Litigation Handbook is the first publication aimed at the practitioner who must make quick practical decisions in the heat of battle and evaluate the immediate procedural consequences. Copyright Litigation Handbook devotes attention to procedural case law that rarely reaches the appellate level, but is of critical importance to the life of everyday practitioners.

The New York Law Journal called Dowd's Copyright Litigation Handbook "an indispensable guide and supplement to the ins and outs of copyright litigation".   Join us for a lively session on a hot topic.   For more information on Copyright Litigation Handbook 2011 ed, please visit the Thomson Reuters Westlaw Store here.
