The morning session will include a walk-through of the practical steps involved in having infringing content removed from social media platforms, an introduction to the technology that can be used to monitor infringement, tips on how to use social media to find evidence of infringement, and a review of recent CJEU copyright case law in relation to hyperlinking.

Presentations after lunch include a view from the marketing industry, a guide to the law on “memes” and other user generated content, and reviews of the impact of social media on IP valuation and advertising.
