CopyCamp 2020

At CopyCamp, copyright is discussed in an interesting, substantive, and engaging way. It is an event on law, but it’s not a law conference. For 8 years, CopyCamp opens space to share experiences in an international, interdisciplinary group of artists, experts, scientists, and social activists and show how law related to copyright is important to everyone.

Copyright – Lessons from the Pandemic
This year, the pandemic has reinforced the role of the digital world in our lives. Copyright is one of those regulations, which have a strong effect on methods of communication and capability of the Internet, and therefore on the shape of society and culture. Do we know what is allowed today, what is forbidden, and what will change in the coming months? Can we say, that today’s law is responded to our needs?

Copyright on the Internet is a hot topic also because up to June 2021 EU member states are obligated to adopt the Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market to national law systems. Part of this year CopyCamp edition will focus on the implementation of the directive.

CopyCamp will be held only online for the very first time.

Every day between November 23rd and 27th, 2020, three speakers will present 10-12 minutes long presentations after that will held a Q&A session. Polish and English will be the languages of the event.
