One of the greatest challenges in global publishing is navigating how different markets respond to copyright issues. Michael Healy, Executive Director of International Relations for Copyright Clearance Center (CCC), is one of the leading experts in these issues and will be highlighting recent legislation and challenges in the European Union, Brazil, South Africa, and even Georgia State University in the United States at our upcoming June 13 conference “Rights and Content in the Digital Age.”
In an interview with Publishing Perspectives earlier this month, Healy highlighted some key points about international copyright in a preview to his talk at the International Digital Publishers Forum (IDPF) conference at BookExpo America.
“There simply are so many technological tools,” Healy says, “that make it so easy to share content electronically.
“Think of how easy it is using the most popular social media platforms for us to link people to content. It’s so ubiquitous now. In the face of that, content users talk about their rights. And part of the conversation has to be what the responsibilities of the users are.”
Michael Healy will be speaking at Publishing Perspectives’ Rights and Content in the Digital Age conference on June 13, Grand Hall at the NYU Kimmel Center in New York City. The conference hashtag is #pprights16. Tickets are available here.
