I’m pleased to announce that our next Copyright and Technology London conference will take place on Wednesday, October 1, at the offices of ReedSmith in the City of London. This is the same beautiful venue as our conference last October, with 360-degree floor-to-ceiling views of the city. Music Ally is producing the event. Now in our fifth year, the mission of the Copyright and Technology conferences is to bring together a diverse group of lawyers, technologists, policymakers, and business people for education and intelligent dialog about the nexus of copyright and technology. The London conference focuses on issues of particular interest in the UK and the rest of Europe but also offers international perspectives from the US, Australia, and beyond.
At this point, I am soliciting ideas for sessions. What are the hot issues for people concerned with copyright in the UK, Europe, and beyond? As in past Copyright and Technology conferences, the agenda will consist of plenary sessions with a keynote speaker in the morning, and afternoon breakouts into Technology and Law & Public Policy tracks. Please feel free to suggest session topics that will appeal to technologists, law and government professionals, or all of the above. Also feel free to put forward names of speakers for sessions.
We plan to have a working agenda in place by June, so please send me your session proposals by May 16.
As in the past, sponsorship opportunities are available. Copyright and Technology London 2014 is a great opportunity to connect with top-tier decision makers from law firms, media companies, technology vendors, service providers, and government. Please inquire if you are interested in learning more.
