Copyright – next steps for UK policy and content in the digital single market – Westminster Media Forum

Timing: Tuesday 9 July 2013
Venue: Central London – TBA

Guest of Honour: John Alty, Chief Executive and Comptroller General, IPO

This seminar will offer delegates an opportunity to consider the next steps for producing a framework for the delivery of audio-visual works across Europe and possible implications for UK policy in the context of the European Commission’s Communication: Content in the Digital Single Market and enable an analysis of expected proposals in the Communications White Paper.

Planned sessions at the event examine the challenges to updating the European Copyright Framework for the digital age – including options for joined-up approaches across states and improving the effectiveness and efficiency of enforcement – as well as the priorities for enabling cross-border access to audio-visual works for consumers. Delegates will also examine the extent that consumer rights are keeping pace with technological innovation and the options for ensuring that European market harmonisation runs in parallel with protection offered to users.
