PROPRIÉTÉ INTELLECTUELLE & INDUSTRIELLE
IN BRIEF - International Conference in Strasbourg: Copyright Protection |
Management and legitimate use of intellectual property will be
the focus of an International Conference organised by the Internal Market DG in
co-operation with the French Presidency. The Conference will take place in
Strasbourg at the Palais de la Musique et des Congrès on
9-11 July 2000.
The Conference is intended to create a forum for exchange and discussion
aimed at reaching a better understanding of the legal, technical and political
developments taking place in the copyright field. Rightholders, the industry,
users and Member States are faced to a greater extent than before with the
rapidity of technological developments. Copyright protection should be
developed in view of these new realities. This conference might either lead to
some new legislative or non-legislative measures.
Topics to be discussed will focus on facilitating equal access to legitimate
use of works, including the user's perspective. Licensing and management
issues, that play a crucial role, and the need to adapt to new technical
methods of exploitation will also be addressed as well as contractual rules,
moral rights and applicable law.
It is also expected that discussions will allow a further advancement of the
work which is being carried out at the international level (WIPO, WTO). Those
issues to be discussed include broadcasters rights, audio-visual performances
and the protection of folklore.
