ALAP-IPA IP Knowledge Series: Copyright & e-Publications

18 Aug 2017


WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

Electronic books (or e-books) are steadily gaining popularity given the convenience and affordability it brings to consumers. In today’s hyper-connected world, downloading and uploading online content can be done with much ease. As a result, e-publications are at a higher risk of copyright infringement and piracy.

Join us for this workshop if you wish to acquire a deeper understanding of issues relating to copyright ownership, infringement, defences and enforcement in the digital world. Our speaker will also discuss contractual issues between authors, publishers and end-users, as well as matters concerning enforcement of territoriality in a borderless cyber world.

  • Publishing staff such as Sales & Marketing manager, Development Editor, Editorial Manager
  • Authors who have published e-books or are thinking of doing so
  • Librarians
