Following summer holidays, the workshop in law and economics of IP recommenced with the first meeting that took place on September 18th.
Professor Julien Pénin presented an editorial piece entitled “Plaidoyer pour adapter le droit d’auteur à l’économie numérique” he has authored for “Economie & Management Vol. 148”. You can access Professor Pénin’s paper and the presentation below.
The seminar focused on challenges of adapting copyright to the digital age and its participants, including senior researchers such as Robin Cowan (BETA) and Christophe Geiger (CEIPI), as well as a representative of the industry in the person of Fabirama Niang of Total engaged in a lively discussion, which, at points, challenged the stance of the presenter.
Enhancing the format of the workshop, especially to increase the structured exchange across disciplines, Oleksandr Bulayenko, doctoral student at CEIPI provided a comment of the Professor Penin’s presentation. He enriched the discussion in that he provided the participants with the legal insights as well as examples of current policy efforts undertaken in the area of copyright. You can find his well-drafted exposé below.
The workshop organizers invite you to join this lively forum for exchange in law and economics of intellectual property. Next opportunity is the seminar on October 22 at 12 (noon) in 5, rue Schiller. For inquiries please contact Agnieszka Kupzok kupzok[at]unistra.fr
