14/11/2016 : Пресс-релиз - Strasbourg Conference - Copyright Enforcement in the Online World
The Centre for International Intellectual Property Studies (CEIPI) and the European Audiovisual Observatory organise a joint conference at the Council of Europe in Strasbourg
Copyright enforcement online has been increasingly taking the centre stage in the policy debate on the future of copyright law in Europe. The ongoing EU copyright reform has been fuelling this debate even further. The delivery of paying content—as well as the ways we access culture—have clearly changed in the digital world. Creators, artists, musicians and film-makers, on the one hand, defend their legitimate right to reap the benefits of their work. Internet users and public at large, on their part, claim fundamental right to access information and culture online on fair terms and by means of more attractive business models. How can the current copyright laws respond to all these challenges? What should be the role of internet intermediaries in the enforcement of copyright online? And more generally in this context, how to combine effective protection with the principle of net neutrality?
The European Audiovisual Observatory, part of the Council of Europe, and the Centre for International Intellectual Property Studies (CEIPI) of the University of Strasbourg organised this joint public conference at the Council of Europe in Strasbourg —“Copyright Enforcement in the Online World”—from 14.00 till 17.30 on Tuesday 22nd of November). The conference gave an overview of the current state of copyright in the digital world.
