In the framework of the workshop, “Towards better Internet regulation in Latin America - #CELE14,” the conference, “Towards a reconceptualization of copyright II” took place on Tuesday, October 21 at the University of Palermo.

The meeting featured Hirám Meléndez, professor and research at the University of Puerto Rico, as the principal presenter, with comments from Claudio Ruiz (Executive Director of the NGO Derechos Digitales), Enrique Chaparro (President of Fundación Vía Libre) and Mónica Boretto (professor in the Department of Philosophy and Literature at the University of Buenos Aires). The conference was moderated by Verónica Ferrari, CELE researcher.

Revisiting the discussions that took place during an activity organized by CELE last year, the specialists addressed the regulatory debates occurring at the global level related to copyright in digital environments.

More specifically, Meléndez presented on copyright systems and the general principles that all related legislation should follow, and how copyright is being regulated in the United States and Latin America with free trade agreements. Ruiz highlighted the market’s influence on the regulation of copyright systems, while Chaparro and Boretto addressed the situation in Argentina. All of the presentations underscored the need to rethink the traditional copyright model.
