Copyright and the New Economy

This event has passed. Its description is archived below.

ASMP will bring together thought leaders representing different points of view on the subject of copyright to explore its significant issues, challenges and trends. ASMP believes that, in the face of sweeping changes in the way images are used and distributed, much can be gained by establishing a dialogue among representatives of the visual arts community, legal and governmental experts, and the publishing industry. This symposium is intended to seek sustainable business solutions by engaging in an important conversation about economic shifts in the industry, the current state of copyright, and what the future holds for those who produce and use visual works.
