CREATe’s Founding Director Prof Ronan Deazley describes his attendance at the most recent meeting of WIPO’s Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights.
A large consortium of international and regional NGOs representing the cultural heritage sector attended the most recent meeting of WIPO’s Standing Committee on Copyright and Related Rights (SCCR27).
