About the Webinar
Topic: Broadcasting Rights and Fair Use in Sports
While the rise of social media platforms has contributed immensely to maintaining sports at the forefront of public consciousness, it has also unleashed a pandora’s box of new challenges in the field of copyright law. People today enjoy unprecedented ease in recording and uploading highlights and clips of sports on various social media platforms. This unauthorised broadcasting of the sport is panned by sporting organisations and broadcasters, who assert that this encroaches upon their intellectual property rights over the broadcast of the sport.
The Webinar provides an opportunity for a discussion on the legal issues pertaining to broadcasting and seeks to provide participants with industry insight on how broadcasting agreements are negotiated and drafted, the role of lawyers in advising clients in relation to such copyright claims and the process for filing take down notices.
The webinar is open to all persons from law and non-law background having an interest in sports and copyright law.
