Webinar on copyright in EU

The Ministry of European Integration of the Republic of Serbia, in cooperation with the Intellectual Property Office and the European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA), has organised a two-day webinar titled ‘EU Copyright Law – Copyright protection in the digital era’. The webinar was organised through the Technical Assistance Programme of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg ‘Strengthening Capacities to Implement EU Law’.

The webinar represented a follow-up to the previous year’s training on copyright, which was also organised by the Ministry of European Integration and the European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA). The goal of this webinar was to elaborate and discuss individual issues such as communication to the public in the CJEU jurisprudence, how to deal with digital exhaustion under EU copyright law and what role society plays in the collective management of rights in the digital era.

The webinar specifically focused on the topic of the burden of proof in a copyright infringement litigation. The goal was for participants to acquire better understanding of new notions in the area of copyright, as well as challenges in the protection of copyright in the digital era. In addition, the webinar offered an insight into EU legislation through the latest related case-law of the Court of Justice of the European Union.

The webinar was organised for the representatives of the Ministry of European Integration, the Intellectual Property Office, judges of the Higher Court in Belgrade, the Appellate Court in Belgrade and the Commercial Appellate Court, as well as for the representatives of organisations dealing with Chapter 7 – Intellectual property rights.
