The Institute for Information Law (IViR) organises an annual intensive post-graduate course on international copyright law (2-6 July 2018). The face of copyright law changes continuously, mostly due to the constant evolution of the digital networked environment and the legislative initiatives at the international and European level. As a result, copyright professionals must keep abreast of the applicable rules, including those deriving from the TRIPS Agreement, the WIPO Treaties and the various European directives in the area.
