CREATe academics set to organize panel in Global IP Congress in New Delhi

Global IP Congress 2015

CREATe is proud to announce the organization of a bespoke panel at the 4th Global Congress on Intellectual Property and the Public Interest, hosted by the National Law University in New Delhi from Dec 15-17, 2015. The CREATe Panel will be represented by academics from the Universities of Glasgow, Edinburgh, Goldsmiths & Strathclyde, and will focus on business models in the creative economy, drawing upon socio-legal and empirical findings of several research projects that examine existing and emerging business models. The CREATe researchers aim to present to an international audience how the understanding of existing and new business models can contribute to the challenges faced by, and opportunities available to, creative practices and industries in a rapidly changing economic, regulatory and technological environment.

The Global Congress began in Washington DC in 2011, moved to Rio de Janeiro in 2012, and was held in Cape Town in 2013. The fourth Global Congress on IP & the Public Interest, taking place in 2015 in New Delhi, is expected to bring together a wide range of communities, such as academia, civil society, industry, regulators and policy-makers. The event is billed as the largest convening of public interest-oriented intellectual property practitioners ever held in Asia, and would help link in the world’s most populous region to these global debates around how intellectual property policy can best serve the public interest. Besides CREATe (UK), the co-organizers and implementers of this global congress include American University (Washington USA), American Assembly Columbia University (USA), Open AIR (A pan-African Innovation Research & Training project), the National Law University (New Delhi India), and, Centre for Internet & Society (Bangalore India).
