    Different Success Stories, One Promise: Market Knowledge, Inspiration and Network

    "Sometimes overlooked but surprisingly powerful: copyright licensing around the world" with Michael Healy, Executive Director, International Relations, CCC


    Hall 4.0, Business Club, Analysis Stage
    Publishing today depends on technology, and technology is pressing copyright in ways never imagined in the days of printing presses. Copyright holders in the Digital Age are under challenge not only from wide-ranging infringement but also so-called “reform.” In a worldwide review of “the state of copyright,” including controversial copyright-related judgments as well as legislation and legal action around the globe, panelists will lay out details of the disruption underway as well as outline how publishers have become adept at managing the disruption by harnessing market-driven forces.
