This book brings together the papers delivered during the Athens Conference on “Copyright and the Digital Agenda for Europe: Current Regulations and Challenges for the Future”, which was held on 6 June 2014 at the Megaron Moussikis. The conference has taken place during the Hellenic Presidency in the Council of the European Union.
A number of prominent speakers were invited to present the views of the academia, the industry, rightholders, lobbying groups representing various stakeholders and EU and WIPO officials. The book essentially contains transcripts of the presentations as these were presented during the event. Yet, some of the speakers opted to submit articles for a more comprehensive presentation of their views. Therefore, this publication contains both transcripts and articles depending on the speakers’ preference.
