This seminar was programmed by Cambridge University Press.

Copyright was originally established to “encourage learning”. Some three hundred years on, it continues to support authors, publishers and booksellers around the world make available their contribution to the pursuit of research excellence and educational achievement. But its role in the twenty-first century is increasingly questioned, with many asking whether it is sufficiently flexible and adaptable to the shrinking and faster world of cross-border sharing and digital collaboration. Will Bowes, General Counsel and Company Secretary at Cambridge University Press and Mandy Hill, Managing Director of Academic Publishing, Cambridge University Press will explore how Copyright can help governments achieve a well-educated and informed society from both a policy and practical perspective.
