Two years on from our last copyright forum this event offers an opportunity to discuss and debate the future of the UK copyright framework following the decision to leave the European Union and emerging challenges and opportunities for content creators and rights managers.
Post-Brexit Priorities for the UK Copyright Framework
Attendees will discuss the priorities for copyright reform, the challenges of regulatory divergence post-Brexit and how the UK’s copyright framework should develop as negotiations for a harmonised digital single market continue on the continent.
Education and Enforcement
Time will also be allocated to consider next steps for education, ensuring consumers understand the value of the content they consumer, and exploring opportunities for content creators to be more vocal about the financial and time costs involved in production in order to overcome notions of a ‘victimless crime’.
Delegates will also consider the next steps for the voluntary anti-piracy code and the key priorities for creating an enforcement framework which is both fair and acts as a deterrent.
Balancing the Needs of the Consumer and the Creator
Discussions will focus on balancing consumers’ needs and expectations about the content they consume and how they consume it and the need for rights holders to maximise their income, for example, through territorial exclusivity licenses.
