Tools, Not Rules: Copyright in the Digital Age
Wednesday December 11th 2013, 4-6pm
The third Digital Publishing Forum of the Autumn, on Copyright in the Digital Age, will take place on Wednesday December 11th 2013, 4-6pm, Roberts 421 LT, Roberts Building, UCL, immediately followed by a reception in Foster Court, G24, Arts faculty common room.
Join Laurie Kaye (Shoosmiths LLP), Hugh Jones and Florian Koempel (The Publishers Association) in discussing recent legal developments in the UK and Europe (relevant cases as well as legislative initiatives) and their implications for business and users.
While the fundamentals of the current copyright framework are fine as they stand, the focus has now shifted to moving towards a ‘right click’ world, enabled by metadata. It’s about getting content out of the filing cabinet and onto the network. In that context, the panellists will look at the Copyright Hub, Linked Content Coalition and other initiatives to realise the late Charles Clark’s vision of ‘the answer to the machine is the machine’.
Beginning with an overview of where we are on out journey through the digital age, the discussion will move on to survey the legal panorama as it affects publishers. Looking at reviews and possible and likely changes to copyright at both a European and UK level (e.g. to copyright exceptions), the panel will move on to the ‘machine to machine’ dimension. Other topics to be looked at are the current position regarding copyright enforcement (including an update on the Digital Economy Act and Legal Deposit) and other key legal changes which will affect publishers, such as laws on defamation, data protection and consumer law.
