In 2013, the IN Festival will take place for the very first time. Lisbon will open up her doors for designers, investors and consumers of creative industries to interact with each other. Ideas can be pitched, solutions can be found and there will be a tremendous amount of conferences, lectures and workshops.
Rights violation solution
Until now, the cultural and creative sectors have based their economic weight particularly on the extent of Intellectual Property Rights. Though, the recent technologic developments have made the abidement of these Rights more difficult. Content is being spread easily and the work of creatives may not always be protected enough. We are faced this challenge, and the festival opens up discussion on how to find new ways of Intellectual Property Rights protection in this day and technological age.
During the festival, conferences, lectures and workshops will be given by different guest speakers. Attending will be for instance Balsemão Francisco Pinto (President of the European Publishers Council and Group President Impresa), Rick Falkvinge (First President of the Pirate Party), Pr. André Bertrand (Lawyer, Author and Professor at the University of Paris – Sorbonne), Dr. Manuel Mendes Oehen (Lawyer and Commercial Law at Regent Catholic University) and Dr. Paulo Santos (President of FEVIP and GEDIPE).
