FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT

Legal Licensing or Contested Copyright :
A way forward for Information Commerce

An International Forum
on
Licensing Rights for the Internet

Canonbury Academy, London, UK
Monday 7th - Tuesday 8th June 1999

Presented by Imprimatur Services Limited with support from the European
Commission DGXIII

AGENDA
This is the first Forum presented by Imprimatur Services Limited, the
successor company to the Esprit Imprimatur Project. The Forum is a direct
descendant of two previous events, covering Internet Business Models and
Contracts. Its objective is to identify those elements required for a
pragmatic and practical licensing regime for digital networks. Organised
with a mixture of plenary and workshop sessions, the Forum will be an
opportunity for old and new players to meet and understand each other's
needs. A keynote speech will set the scene and workshops will enable the
delegates to discuss the issues in a confidential setting.
The outcome of the Forum is expected to provide a basic description of an
online licensing regime applicable to all content types. There will be a
need to discuss both Licence Creation and Licence Management in the context
of uncertain international legislation, at least for the foreseeable
future. While it will not be possible, in the course of a two day Forum, to
describe more than the most basic requirements of such a regime, it is
hoped that the resulting report will advance substantively the argument for
digital licensing on networks.

PROGAMME

Monday 7th July 1999
Introduction
Keynote Speech
Working Groups

A major keynote speech will be delivered by a well-known expert, setting
the scene for the participants. Following the keynote speech, the delegates
will break into working groups for the rest of the day. The delegates will
try to define how licensing on networks can be operated, guided by a
working group chairman with a distinguished reputation and considerable
expertise in the specific field. A steering committee, drawn from
representatives of the different players in the field of e-commerce in
content, has agreed the following list of topics which will provide a
framework for the discussions.

The identity of likely new actors and services in the value chain
The cost/benefit analysis of licensing processes adapted to different
situations for the rights holder
Warranties and Indemnities
Risk management and IPR
Cross-border Licensing
The requirement for conflict-resolution by regulation, self-regulation or
contract
Licensing for Free and Licensing for Fees - retaining control over
non-remunerated works
Licensing, Reporting and Consumer protection
