  • This session will see knowledgeable and engaging speakers with deep knowledge of consumer products and consumer brand markets who will share their individual outlooks into the future of how retail, marketing and connected devices will shape the future market. Big players of today might become redundant tomorrow. Manufacturers of today become service providers. Retailers become manufacturers – and vice versa. Gaining market share with individual ecosystems will be balanced against the aim to achieve technological standardization. Data and connectivity shifts market powers. Who will benefit, who will suffer, and who will be the market leaders 2030?

  • Rushing into the era of disruptive innovation, DX (Digital Transformation) is revolutionizing the industrial world and society, while data and digitalization are key components of DX. With the rise of AI and the growing importance of data and its use, licensors will have to develop new concepts to make best use of the legal means (such as patent, copyright or trade secret) and practical means (such as restricting access) available to protect such data. Those legal and practical approaches will in turn have implications for license agreements which will be at the center of this workshop. Panelists address how various industrial sectors such as automotive are going to handle data as assets, where they are going, and what points should seriously be considered in legal and practical aspects.
    Workshop 3

  • Mock Mediation of IP License Dispute using WIPO. We began the panel with Adam Rattray from WIPO explaining the difference between mediation and arbitration, then describing WIPO's approach. This was followed by Jim Sobieraj (acting as mediator) explaining his role and how he plans to conduct the mock mediation. We had a great group for the actual mock mediation. We wrapped up with 10 points to consider when planning for mediation and audience discussion.

  • The internet has been around for more than 25 years. On-line delivery of music and films no longer take ages. According to Motion Pictures of America and IFPI, most people watch films or listen to music via streaming. In fact, IFPI’s 2019 Music Listening Report, 89% listen to music through on- demand streaming. Many do so using YouTube, showing that the platform between music and films are blurred. Naturally, the revenue streams from the different means of exploiting copyright for music is now coming mainly from streaming. As much as 59% is coming from streaming. Performing rights societies which traditionally manage broadcast, cable and performing rights are becoming more and more important. In this session, we examine the role of collective rights management organisations (traditionally called “performing rights societies”), in this world of new consumer habits and how different players are responding to this trend. Should new rights like those in the EU Directive on Copyright in the Digital Single Market (Directive 2019/790) be introduced or is technology and business models the right avenues for response?
