Works by Iranian authors, first published in Iran, are in the public domain in the United States. But abuse of copyright allegations can still cost creators dearly. Niloufar Talebi, artist and translator of the great Iranian poet, Ahmad Shamlou (1925-2000), discusses her struggle to bring Shamlou's poetry to Western audiences despite baseless allegations of copyright infringement leveled at her. She'll be in conversation with moderator Molly Van Houweling and Eric Evans, who helped collect evidence of the works' public domain status under 17 U.S.C. § 104.
