Event: The Future Of Copyright

Join Chris on Wednesday 8th March 2023 (16:00-17:30 GMT) for one of the events making up the Oxford Festival of Open Scholarship (OxFOS).

Chris will be chairing a discussion between leading experts in the fields of copyright scholarship, librarianship and publishing to debate the role copyright law reform might play in advancing open access publishing.

Professor John Willinsky (Simon Fraser University, Stanford University, Public Knowledge Project) will present his talk – Achieving Sustainable Universal Open Access through Copyright Reform.

Professor Asunción Esteve Pardo (University of Barcelona) will provide a European civil law perspective on Prof Willinsky’s presentation and share the findings from her own research into the relationship between copyright and open access.

The proposals raised in both presentations will then be discussed by a panel which will include Chris Banks, Director of Library Services, Imperial College London and Andy Redman, Director of Open Access, Oxford University Press.

The event will be hybrid so you can choose whether to attend in person in Oxford or online via Teams. The session will also be recorded.
