An artist painstakingly recreates the “Mona Lisa” using the same variety of paints, brushes and canvas as did Michelangelo. Across town, a factory stamps out hundreds of replicas of the iconic painting each day, using state-of-the-art printing. In a copyright infringement case, is there any legal difference between the lovingly recreated painting and one of the mass-produced prints made by the factory? There should be, says Joseph Fishman, a copyright law expert and assistant professor of law at Vanderbilt Law School.

CarolSwain.jpg

Vanderbilt University political scientist Carol Swain predicted the rise of the white nationalism, seen by many as the foundation of the alt-right movement, 14 years ago in her book, The New White Nationalism in America: Its Challenge to Integration. “The alt-right is not a new development. It is an effort to rebrand the white nationalism I described in 2002, as a more intellectual movement that uses social science data, rhetoric and civil rights laws to advance its agenda,” Swain, professor of political science and of law, says.
