Next steps for copyright policy: UK and European reform- Westminster Media Forum

Thursday, 19th June 2014
Venue: Central London
This event is CPD certified

This seminar will be a timely opportunity for delegates to discuss latest policy developments and emerging challenges facing the UK’s copyright framework.

It takes place in the context of the European Commission consultation seeking industry views on harmonising copyright laws across the EU, as the Government begins to implement important reforms to UK copyright law – particularly for collective rights management – following the Hargreaves Review, as well as the Government’s announcement of a delay to the introduction of Ofcom’s anti-piracy code until 2015. Planned sessions examine the next steps for UK copyright policy in the wider context of the European framework, the priorities and challenges for the Copyright Hub and the emerging ways policy-makers, rights holders, ISPs, advertisers and others within the value chain can work together to combat copyright infringement.

We are delighted to be able to include in this seminar keynote addresses from Maria Martin-Prat, Head of Unit, Copyright, DG Internal Market and Services, European Commission; Viscount Younger of Leckie, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Intellectual Property, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and Dominic Young, Chief Executive Officer, The Copyright Hub and Founder, Ytrium.
