COMMUNIA Salon 4: Which digital policies work for cultural heritage in 2020s?
After three successfully organised virtual “salons”, Communia will, in cooperation with #NoWorries project, organise the fourth one “Which digital policies work for cultural heritage in 2020s?” on Thursday, 17 September 2020. You are welcome to attend!
The online event will take place only three days after the European Commission’s Public consultation on opportunities offered by digital technologies for the culture heritage sector will have come to a close. The aim of the event is to gain the cultural heritage sector stakeholders’ insight on the effects of digital technologies and their proposals on how to shape new and appropriate policies. The discussion will target the new European copyright reform as well, and the cultural heritage institutions-related rules contained in the new Directive on Copyright and Related Rights on the Digital Single Market.
The Salon will be held on Zoom from 15:30 to 17:00 and it will be publicly available to anyone, subject to prior registration. Welcome!
The 43rd session of the WIPO Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights (hereinafter SCCR) made substantial progress on the issues advocated by the A2K Coalition (Access to Knowledge Coalition), which IPI is a member of. This year’s session was the most productive on the issues of exceptions and limitations. James Love (Knowledge Ecology International), a long-time observer at WIPO, described the outcome and the impact of the public interest community as the strongest since the conclusion of the Marrakech Treaty, which brought global copyright exceptions for the benefit of the blind and visually impaired.
