The future for copyright and design rights policy - rights management, enforcement and the UK's approach post-Brexit

July 2017


Price: £95 PLUS VAT
Format: DOWNLOADABLE PDF


This seminar considered the future for UK copyright and design rights policy during and after the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union, and laid out the priorities for the Intellectual Property Office.


Delegates analysed options going forward for copyright and design rights 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 considering 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 also examined 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.
