International Copyright Law Summer Course
|Date:||02 July 2018 to 06 July 2018|
The Institute for Information Law organizes an annual intensive post-graduate course on international copyright law. The face of copyright law changes continuously, mostly due to the constant evolution of the digital networked environment and the legislative initiatives at the international and European level. As a result, copyright professionals must keep abreast of the applicable rules, including those deriving from the TRIPS Agreement, the WIPO Treaties and the various European directives in the area.
Check out our programme of the summer course of 2018.
The course will extend over a period of five days from July 2 to 6, 2018 and is divided into nine seminars, given during morning or afternoon sessions. All lunch breaks are spent together as a group. Every seminar focuses on one specific issue of copyright law, which participants explore in depth with the lecturer.
Enrollment is limited to 25 participants.
Goals of the course:
At the conclusion of the course, participants will have gained valuable insight in the most crucial current issues of copyright law, examined from a comparative law perspective and in the light of recent international and regional agreements. Participants in the course will also have access to comprehensive course materials, consisting of the most relevant international, European and American legislative documents, case law, and other background materials.
The lectures are given by internationally renowned scholars, including those of the Institute for Information Law, and practitioners who all share years of academic and practical experience in the field of international copyright law. See the faculty page for an overview of this year’s lecturers.
