This event will hopefully be one to follow. The day will offer “workshops and plenary sessions to explore the role of research and evidence”. ERA is proud to be amongst the symposium’s sponsors along with ALCS, CLA, CREATe, PRS for Music, and The Industry Trust for IP Awareness.
To quote Nic Fearon-Low speaking to The 1709 Blog:
“Creativity and innovation are important drivers of economic development. They are crucial to the character of our society. Too often a lack of understanding or respect for the work of others means that creators are not properly recognised or rewarded for their work. The challenge is to educate people, particularly the next generations of consumers and creators, as to the value of IP and especially copyright.”
The symposium will offer a great platform to showcase the work being done to improve copyright education, discuss issues affecting the sector, and continue conversations about collaboration.
