Their keynotes will focus on how creators can promote respect for their works, achieve fair remuneration, and secure a guarantee for young creators of a future free of constraint and submission where they will have the freedom to pursue their art.Kenth Muldin, CEO of STIM and Chair of the CISAC Board of Directors, commented, “From copyright’s effect on innovation to direct licensing and business models for ebooks and films, we will be covering a wide range of topics at this year’s conference that have a direct effect on creators and the creative industries worldwide. And, of course, we will be looking at modern collective management of rights and why, in our view, it remains the most relevant system for both creators and users of creative content.” Olivier Hinnewinkel, Director General of CISAC, added: “We have an exciting line up for this year’s Summit, which demonstrates just how important and topical copyright issues are these days. We are looking forward to lively and stimulating debates on market developments, the huge potential for creators from new digital services, and the important role of collective management organizations in the online world.”Featuring appearances from more than 80 of the biggest influencers and industry luminaries in the creator-rights space, speeches and panels will illustrate the major issues to be addressed at the Summit and contained in the event slogan “Create – Connect – Respect”:Creating and monetizing creative works in the digital era Cultivating a fair and sustainable environment for the creative sector Supporting innovation and digital growth with new solutions developed by collective management organizations and PROsThe role of policy-makers and copyright legislation in supporting the digital development of the creative sector How to balance the protection of creators and consumers’ access to works
