    The Eldred v Ashcroft case, challenging the constitutionality of the
    Copyright Term Extension Act, has divided the arts community. While
    scholars and artists have filed briefs on behalf of Eldred, some publishers
    and other artists have supported the Government's case. As one of its IFAR
    Evenings, the International Foundation for Art Research is organizing a
    symposium on the impact this case may have on the arts community.
