The Congress is in line with other initiatives already undertaken by GEDAI/UFPR and aims to stimulate a critical and in-depth approach to Intellectual Property Law. In this opportunity, the public and economic interests involved in the issue of Copyright and the new business models in the Creative Economy will be analyzed.
The global scenario of Copyright goes through great and intense debates, revealing the American, European and Latin American trends and positions, as well as those from the main legal research centers in the world regarding the creation, distribution and use of digital goods in a globalized world connected by the INTERNET. Current issues such as these will be addressed in the event:
New challenges for Copyright in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
New business models and artistic expressions in the Creative Economy and how they should be adequately protected for a fair remuneration of authors.
How will be the Intellectual Property Rights of works created through artificial intelligence be protected.
Digital Culture as an affirmation of public interest in the digital transformation of the cultural heritage of museum collections and its dissemination on the Internet.
What public interests will be the parameters for legislative changes and how to undertake a positive agenda so that the new development models for Brazil effectively promote social, technological, and cultural inclusion.
The main purpose of the Congress on Copyright and the Public Interest is to facilitate the debate among academic, professional, and artistic sectors in the area of Copyright and Cultural Rights on the need for reform of the Copyright Law within the cultural and technological context of Brazilian society.
In this event the participants, besides the lectures, panels, and case studies, will be able to take part in lectures presented by the main Research Groups in the country and abroad, allowing them to know their current research topics. Likewise, they will be able to participate in the Copyright Workshops, aimed at training producers and cultural managers, producers, creators of educational content for face-to-face and distance education, and professionals working in the field of intellectual property in general.
