Digital Publishing Forum - Legal Issues: their impact on publishing
This fourth seminar of 2012 will be held from 4-6pm at UCL folllowed by a reception.
Speakers will be Laurie Kaye of Laurence Kaye Solicitors and PA Copyright Counsel Hugh Jones. Chaired by Anthony Watkinson, Senior Lecturer, Department of Information Studies, UCL, this seminar will ask:
- what are the forces applying pressure for legal change that will impact on publishing?
- what is their agenda, and where are the pressure points?
- what does the future hold for territoriality?
Hugh Jones and Laurie Kaye will explore these questions with reference to hot topics like Hargreaves and copyright law, DCE and the Linked Content Coalition, enforcement, the Defamation Bill, data protection regulation and Legal Deposit. They will also take a look to the future - what will the legal landscape look like in two years' time? What changes to the law are in the pipeline, and how will they impact on business models?
These friendly, informal events allow ample time for questions and discussion, followed by drinks and an opportunity for further networking and discussion. The seminar fee is £46 for members of the Publishers Association and £92 for non-members.
