The LTEC-EIPIN-Innovation Society Transnational IP Law and Innovation Speaker Series presents:
"Universalism in International Copyright Law Through the Lens of Marrakesh" with Graeme B. Dinwoodie, Global Professor of Intellectual Property Law at IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law.
The Marrakesh Treaty to Facilitate Access to Published Works by Visually Impaired Persons and Persons with Print Disabilities has been heralded by a wide range of commentators as a step in a new direction in international copyright law. This seminar will assess the treaty’s significance through the lens of a conventional consideration that has been around since the formation of the Berne Convention, namely, to what extent does it alter our understanding of the notion of universalism in international copyright law. And through that assessment, I want to consider the whole notion of universalism in international copyright law and develop (with an eye to Marrakesh as well as a couple of other recent developments) the range of mechanisms by which universalism might be pursued.
