Description

Professor Silke von Lewinski will deliver the Charles Clark Memorial Lecture at The London Book Fair on Tuesday 10th March 2020.

Silke von Lewinski is tenured at the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition, Munich, and specialises in international and European copyright law.

Professor von Lewinski will deliver a 30-minute lecture followed by a moderated Q&A. The lecture will end with a drinks reception for attendees.

Since its inception in 2008, the Charles Clark Memorial Lecture has grown to be the most important copyright event at The London Book Fair—the home of global copyright trading in the publishing industry. Supported by representative bodies from across the publishing industry—the Publishers Association, Copyright Licensing Agency, the Federation of European Publishers, the Publishers’ Licensing Services and the International Publishers Association—the lecture focusses on key developments in the world of copyright.

The event will bring together copyright experts, from academics to practitioners, publishing professionals, rights managers, authors, artists, professionals from the wider creative industries and those interested in the future of copyright for publishing and IP.

Please note: you must have a valid ticket to The London Book Fair 2020 to attend this event.
