THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will consider the future for UK copyright policy during and after the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union, and lay out the priorities for the Intellectual Property Office.
Delegates will analyse options going forward for copyright legislation in the UK as it leaves the EU, including the potential impact of any divergence between UK and EU copyright law on creative businesses, intermediaries and consumers, as well as consider how the UK might effectively use its new autonomy to mitigate the consequences of withdrawing from negotiations on a harmonised EU-level copyright framework.
Sessions will also examine the priorities for UK policymakers and industry for creating a strong independent copyright framework in the context of challenges facing copyright owners from technological advancement and digitisation of content and distribution channels, for balancing consumer interests with creator reward, and for supporting growth in the UK digital and creative economies.
