JaQuel Knight, the choreographer behind Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” video and Coachella performance, will talk about his fight to copyright his work, along with his lawyer, David Hecht. U.S. Register of Copyrights, Shira Perlmutter, will share her plans to reach out to independent creators and how the new small-claims court system created by the CASE Act will give them an accessible and affordable way to assert their rights.
