Business leaders to debate the importance of upholding consumers interests in IP
Consumers International, with the support of UFC-Que Choisir and La Quadrature du Net, is holding a Business Roundtable on the Consumer Interest in IPRs on the afternoon of 22 October (just before the TACD's second Paris Accord meeting), to bring together representatives of the entertainment, publishing, information technology and communications industries to discuss and debate the role that consumers' interests play in their decision-making on intellectual property issues.
This free event will provide a venue for dialogue about the changing environment facing businesses that produce or use information protected by IPRs, and the intersection between the interests of such businesses in financial sustainability, with the interests of consumers in being able to fairly access, copy, share and build upon the culture and science of their society. The objective of the event is to challenge the participants into thinking laterally about how the interests of consumers and creators can be mutually supporting.
