Podcast: Copyright & Culture with Terrica Carrington

The theme of World IP Day this year is IP and Youth: Innovating for the Future. And one young IP expert trying to shape a better future for the next generation of creators is Terrica Carrington, VP of Legal Policy and Copyright Counsel at Copyright Alliance. With a passion for social justice, Terrica focuses a great deal of her energy and talent on broadening the copyright system to serve a more diverse range of creators—especially young creators of color.

In January, Terrica was presented by the Washington Area Lawyers for the Arts with the G. Hamilton Loeb Award for Pro Bono Excellence for her work supporting the arts; and among her many other activities, she co-hosts a series of panel discussions called Black in Copyright in collaboration with Copyright Alliance, the Copyright Society, and the Young Lawyers Division of the Black Entertainment & Sports Lawyers Association.
