Copyright & Brexit: what next?

Following the departure of the UK from the EU, two main questions emerge: the first concerns the value and legacy of EU copyright legislation and the case law of the Court of Justice of the European Union in this former EU Member State; the second relates to the actual room left for UK copyright law to develop, at least in the medium and long term, in different directions from the EU acquis. This talk will pinpoint the main aspects underlying these questions, and attempt to map the future of UK copyright at a time of change and uncertainty.

They will highlight some “dos and don’ts” when extending resources licences for users outside of the traditional locations. The session will focus on how institutional decisions impact on libraries, how the library is a vital component of the delivery of those strategic developments and how having a ‘seat at the table’ is crucial.
