Public Lecture: Copyright for the Digital Arts and Humanities with Dr. Eoin O'Dell

Date: 17 June 2015
Location: Royal Irish Academy

The Digital Arts and Humanities PhD Strucuted Programme are pleased to welcome Dr Eoin O'Dell to the Royal Irish Academy to discuss all things "copyright" for the digital arts and humanities. The abstract for this lunch time lecture is below but Eoin is happy to speak to any questions that you may have so please send these along prior to the event.

Abstract: Copyright functions both to enable and to curtail the development of digital arts and humanities. On the one hand, it incentivizes and rewards the creation of original literary, dramatic, musical or artistic works, sound recordings, films, and so on. On the other hand, by protecting such works, it precludes derivative works and downstream innovation. This talk will look at the extent to which copyright legislation in Ireland and Europe achieves an appropriate balance between these two competing ends, and at whether currently mooted reform proposals are likely to improve that balance.
