Half Day Conference – IP and Comp. issues arising from the Google Book Settlement – 12 February, Brussels

leave a comment »

The Google Book Settlement is not only a US, intellectual property, issue.  Its consequences may be felt in Europe and elsewhere in the world, and cover other areas, such as privacy, cultural policy, and competition law.

This is why my research institute (IEJE, University of Liege) has decided to hold, on 12 February in Brussels, a half-day conference entitled “The Google Book Settlement – The Challenge of Building a Digital Library that Benefits All”. This conference is a joint effort of the IEJE and the Centre for Innovation and Intellectual Property of the St Louis Faculties in Brussels.

The programme (available below) has been designed so as to reflect the breadth of opinions on this complex issue. Speakers include Commission officials, high level scholars, in-house counsels and practitioners.
