Workshop on Intellectual Property Rights in Szeged
Collaborative GLAM workshop
The Cultural Heritage Sector is a key enabler of the advancement of the Cultural and Creative Industries in Europe. Not only does it provide access to vast amounts of reusable cultural content, it can be seen as a R&D lab of the cultural and creative ecosystem through which it contributes both to the economic advancement and to society at large. However, researchers and policy-makers are struggling to fully understand the crucial role that the Cultural Heritage Sector can play in the digitisation process of the cultural and creative ecosystem in Europe.
This event will explore current issues in intellectual property law. It is organised by reCreating Europe, the inDICEs project and the University of Szeged.
The Institute of Comparative Law and Legal Theory (University of Szeged, Faculty of Law and Political Sciences) will host the 6th annual Workshop on Intellectual Property Rights in Szeged (WIPS) on June 9-10, 2022 in Szeged (Hungary).
Launched in 2016, WIPS is organised by the University of Szeged to explore current issues in intellectual property law in an open, discussion-based way for both senior and junior academics. This year’s WIPS is dedicated to three main tracks. First, copyright-related aspects of the GLAM sector will be discussed by presenters and during the training part of the event. Second, the overlaps of competition law and intellectual property law will be addressed. Third, the challenges of modern technology to copyright law will be discussed.
