IP Osgoode Conference: Learning from Europe

Along with CLaw Executive member Michelle Doody, I attended the IP Osgoode Conference in Ottawa last Friday, ”Can Canada Learn Anything From Europe? European Perspectives on Copyright Law in the Information Era”. Leading academics, government policy makers, industry specialists and lawyers came together to discuss the ways in which European copyright law functions in the digital realm, and how Canadian stakeholders can develop a better system based on the lessons from the European experience.

We recommend watching the webcast at the IP Osgoode website, particularly for Sessions Three and Four; Ted Shapiro, Senior VP, General Counsel and Deputy Managing Director of the Motion Picture Association in Europe spoke at both and shared ideas on film copyright infringement.
