    Discussion: Taking Copyright Issues Global

    Copyright systems around the world function in disharmony due to varying legal philosophies and practices in place. How does this affect rights holders and does it have an impact on the development of legal services? And how can the world work in a more harmonious way? The panel of experts discusses whether the world is heading towards greater cooperation on copyright issues and harmonization of copyright legislation, and what would be the steps required to achieve these goals.
