Copyright contracts tomorrow
Copyright contract law is on the move. This one-day symposium brings together a group of eminent experts to determine where it is heading and how this will impact legal practice.
Scrutinising a hot topic largely disregarded to date, the morning programme focuses on the implementation of the brand-new contract law rules in the 2019 Digital Single Market Directive, as well as on its implications for the future of copyright contracts in Belgium and its neighbouring countries. In the afternoon, a new light will be shed on a selection of copyright contracting issues that have arisen from the digital context.
Held in English with a hands-on comparative approach, this symposium will be valuable for both Belgian and international IP specialists, and in particular for legal academics, magistrates, attorneys, company lawyers and other practitioners, triggered by the same question: What will our copyright contract law look like tomorrow?
