The Copyright Association of Ireland is delighted to be hosting the bi-annual Study Days of ALAI in Dublin over the two days 30th June and 1st July 2011. It’s a rare opportunity to hear leading world copyright lawyers and industry representatives debate pressing issues and reflect on new challenges to copyright paradigms.

Speakers are drawn from academia, international organisations and the copyright industries, with a sprinkling of judges and practitioners. International participants include the President of HADOPI, the French online enforcement agency, and prolific author Professor Silke von Lewinski of the Max Planck Institute. The industry perspective will be represented by speakers from Google and the Walt Disney Corporation. Irish contributors will include Judge Peter Charleton, Professor Robert Clark, and Helen Sheehy, Solicitor, who represented the Plaintiffs in the Eircom/UPC file-sharing litigation.

The cost of the two-day conference package is €400, which includes lunch on both days, and conference dinner on 1st July. There is a special one-day rate of €150. Student discounts are available.
