THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar will examine key issues for copyright policy in the UK.
Following the publication of the Creative Industries Sector Deal, which sets out aspirations to close the ‘value gap’ between IP owners and online platforms, delegates will assess latest thinking on helping creative businesses to extract value from their IP - looking at rights management and the potential of technologies such as AI and blockchain.
We also expect discussion on the way forward for UK copyright policy after Brexit and in the broader international context, looking at registration of EU-wide IP rights in the UK, implications for the UK’s participation in the digital single market, and international copyright exhaustion frameworks.
Further sessions focus on what more can be done to tackle piracy - with current thinking on improving education and public awareness, legal measures and enforcement - and in light of extra funding for the Get It Right awareness campaign and plans for new codes of practice to address copyright infringement of online content, building on elements of the Government’s Digital Charter.
