“Performers' rights in today's European environment: how to adapt existing rights to new uses of performances?”

18-19 November 2010
Brussels, Crowne Plaza « Le Palace »
Rue Gineste 3, 1210 Brussels 


The meeting will be held over one day and a half and it will comprise three panels on the following topics:


1 - Webcasting, streaming, downloading...: how does daily Internet use impact on the development of cultural content?

2 - Intellectual property rights' answers to new technologies

3 - Collective management of rights in a globalised environment: role and challenges

The situation of performing rights has evolved significantly over the last years. This seminar will offer the opportunity to discuss and analyse the place of performers in relation to the European's and other international policies in a globalised and fast evolving environment.

Performers' artistic endeavours together with the revenues derived from their IP rights and other activities have been affected by emerging business models with the development of Internet and mobile phone technologies. Adapted solutions are needed for a sustainable creative economy.

Topics like digital market trends, licensing of performers' rights, database management and remuneration schemes, term of protection, the state of play and needs of performers in the music and the audiovisual fields, valuing culture and performers' rights around the world and the role of collective management in the cultural and creative industries sector will be discussed during the meeting.
