This one-day exploratory event seeks to examine the prospect of practising Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in relation to copyright, where similar ideas of corporate social awareness have already applied to other areas of intellectual property protection.
The workshop aims to bring together research in law and business, in order to assess the resilience and normative sufficiency of copyright’s existing legal configurations, and then to reflect on redefining CSR and its practices as alternatives to copyright law. One of the main concerns of these proceedings is the challenge of balancing the economic sustainability of the creative industries with society’s needs to uninhibitedly develop culture through the reuse and reproduction of knowledge and other cultural content.
The event is free and open to anyone with an interest in the described areas, although places are limited and registration in advance is necessary. To register, as well as for any enquiries for this event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
