The Institute of Comparative Law will organize an English language international conference on the collision of copyrights and human rights in the digital era. This is the first event that discusses this issue in Hungary (and in English language); therefore it can give a unique perspective for those, who are interested in copyrights and/or human rights.
The programme includes 16 great presentations from scholars and practitioners from seven different jurisdictions. The conference will be opened by Péter Mezei, and will start with the keynote speech of Peter Yu. Four different panels are set up to deal with the basics of copyright and human rights, the need for balance between these two bunches of interests, file-sharing and some other current copyright issues. Panels will be moderated by Tuomas Mylly, Mihály Ficsor Sr., Stefan Larsson and Peter Yu.
The conference will take place in Szeged and will happen on February 25, 2012. For all the other relevant information please read the embedded letter of invitation. (Programme on the fourth page!)
Looking forward seeing you in Szeged.
