The International Symposium fully dedicated to the Copyrights within the Internet era, that the Lisbon & Estoril Film Festival brings to the Centro de Congressos do Estoril on November 11th and 12th, will be a pluridisciplinar gathering, of universal reach, artists, academics, economical agents and institutional decision-makers around a rather important theme now-a-days.
Through three roundtables, dedicated to Music, Cinema and Literature, the International Symposium will seek to confront different, and even opposite opinions, but mainly complementary about the copyrights within the Internet era.
Writers Paul Auster and Don Delillo, Harvard University teachers and Berkman Centre director Willizm W. Fisher, State Secretary for Culture Francisco José Viegas, playwriter Yasmina Reza, French National Library Director Jean-Mare Compte, singer Sophie Auster, writer and French Deputy Aurélie Filippeti, music producer Fréderic Junqua and the DJs and internationally renown DJs Para One and LOGO will be some of the participants of this Symposium.
The limelight of this symposium will be fully handed to the artists themselves, so they can finally share and express their view points without the media and political haste. And so that new and conscience perspectives can be found.
This gathering with international ambition is organised in collaboration with the Sciences Po Paris and its Ecole de Arts Politiques, together with think tank Jeune République and the public forum platform Création, Public, Internet. The content and conclusions of this symposium will be published under the Creative Commons licence.
