CISAC (the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers) has announced the second World Copyright Summit for June 9 and 10 in Washington, DC. The Summit will provide a forum for influential creators, rights organizations and guilds, content service providers, broadcasters, telecommunications operators, hardware manufacturers, legal experts and policy-makers to exchange ideas and discuss issues linked to intellectual property and creative content online. More than 100 speakers will emphasize the need for constructive dialogue about the importance of copyright protection and the distribution of creative works in the digital era. CISAC President Robin Gibb will be joined at the Summit by artists including world renowned painter and sculptor Frank Stella, Motown songwriting legend Lamont Dozier, French visual artist Hervé Di Rosa, and Mexican composer Armando Manzanero. The slogan for the World Copyright Summit, “New Frontiers for Creators in the Marketplace,” reflects the four main themes to be addressed during this two-day conference: New Visions for Creative Industries; Challenges for Creators and Rights-Owners in the Digital Era; Weather Forecast on Copyright Climate; and Valuing the Creative Eco-System.
“The voices of creators are seldom heard on copyright issues in the digital age, their participation is what makes the World Copyright Summit a unique event,” added Gibb, member of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members the Bee Gees. “The Summit in Washington, D.C. will ensure that creativity is recognized as a vital part of the economic, cultural and social landscape.”
