Copyright in Digital technology

Pack your bags...it is almost time to attend the next International Congress taking place in Latin America. Lima, Peru is the place to be on November. The event titled: “Copyright and related rights in the face of new technologies: compatible or conflicting interests?” will take place from November 8th to 10th inclusive.

The title appears to be quite self-explanatory but just in case you are still in doubt the conference refers to topics regarding the rights of authors in the digital environment. Matters that would be cover are: the responsibility of internet service providers in the digital environment; cloud computing; technological protection measures; the protection of audiovisual performers at national and international levels; the right to remuneration for private copying of sound recordings; access to copy for personal and private use of text and images in the digital environment; and the collecting societies in the digital environment, among others.

The panellists: well... you always expect the usual Professors from reputable Universities and highly regarded lawyers as well as directors of important IP Institutions...yes, they are the ones (coming from all over Latin America) BUT this Congress has the bonus to hear other experts in this area. You will also be hearing what other type of specialists and professionals have to say such as: singers, artists and of course even a comedian...what else could you ask for?
