Contrabrand | Sonia Katyal

Weds | 7:30Pm



The greatest threat to cultural and artistic freedom, Sonia Katyal argues, stems not from the pervasive power of the government, but instead from the powerful reach of corporate branding over artistic and consumer response. Katyal will discuss the intersection of art, commercial speech, and trademark law within the First Amendment.

Professor Sonia K. Katyal, the Joseph M. McLaughlin Professor of Law at Fordham Law School, teaches in the areas of intellectual property, property, and civil rights. Her articles have appeared in the Yale Law Journal, Penn Law Review, UCLA Law Review, and the Washington Law Review, among others.
