New York, October 14, 2014—Columbia Law School alumnus Joshua Schiller ’08 can trace his interest in intellectual property law to his time as an undergraduate, in the early days of free music downloading. In 2000, under legal pressure, his university became one of the first to block students’ access to the popular online music-sharing service Napster.
Joshua Schiller '08, a third-year associate at Boies, Schiller & Flexner “Napster led me to follow the law of copyright in The New York Times generally, and then to start to try to figure out what fair use was all about,” Schiller recalled at an October 1 panel featuring recent Columbia Law School graduates who work in IP and fashion law, sponsored by the Kernochan Center for Law, Media and the Arts.
