Time for a new Copyright Act?
26 May 2022, 6.15pm
Does the United Kingdom need a new copyright Act? Join us in London on 26 May to discuss what answer to this intriguing and important question should be!
The keynote address will be delivered by Lord Justice Arnold, who will present the case in favour of new legislation, identifying nine reasons why a new Act is required and discussing how the framing of the new Act should be approached.
A panel discussion, chaired by Eleonora Rosati (Stockholm University), will then follow. The Panellists are (in alphabetical order) John Enser (British Screen Advisory Council), John Mottram (PRS for Music), Nicola Solomon(Society of Authors), Catriona Stevenson (Publishers’ Association), and Uma Suthersanen (Queen Mary University of London).
