Key issues for copyright in the UK - value exchange, international relationships and protection

Date: 12 July 2018 to 12 July 2018
Location: London, UK

This timely seminar will examine key issues for copyright policy in the UK.

It takes place in the context of the EU’s proposed directive on copyright, currently making its way through the European Parliament, which includes potential measures placing greater responsibility on digital platforms and online content hosts to identify and remove infringing content.

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.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.
