The 38th session of the WIPO Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights (SCCR) takes place in Geneva from 1 - 5 April 2019.
EIFL will participate in the session when delegates from WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) member states discuss limitations and exceptions for libraries and archives, education and research, and a proposed treaty for the protection of broadcast organizations, among other topics.
On 1 April, at 13:00 CEST, EIFL Copyright and Libraries Programme Manager Teresa Hackett will participate in a lunch-time side event titled, ‘Truths, Trends and Tropes: Unpacking the Debate’. Co-organized by EIFL, IFLA and Education International, the side event will provide context and understanding to support delegates engaging in discussions on limitations and exceptions at SCCR/38 and in the planned WIPO regional seminars. Speakers are drawn from among experts in the library, archive, museum, education and research communities. Read more about the side event here.
