UNESCO COPYRIGHT EXCEPTION MEETING


On 27 May UNESCO will host a French-German meeting on exceptions to copyright law. The meetings are part of a series which take place with the collaboration fo Institut de recherche en propriété intellectuelle Henri-Desbois and the Max Planck Institut with the purpose of stimulating debate on copyright in the digital environment and to discuss the future of copyright in France and Germany. The meeting will also propose changes necessary to bring their laws in line with European requirements.

The IPKat doesn't know much about this series of meetings. He wonders if any of his readers do. Merpel thinks this sounds fun - why isn't the UK involved?

I am sure that the IRPI team would be delighted to have meetings with the Queen Mary Institute people.

More about IRPI (and this Franco-German meeting) on their website (French only) www.irpi.ccip.fr

I have to mention that IRPI publishes Propriétés intellectuelles which is a absolute reference among French IP publications.
