The 32nd International Publishers Congress opens on 10th February with over 300 delegates expected from India and across the world. The Congress includes the award ceremony for the 2018 IPA Prix Voltaire and will feature a full programme of sessions covering burning issues affecting publishers and the publishing sector.
Can awards, such as the IPA’s Prix Voltaire, make a difference to the situation of Freedom to Publish defenders? How can we tackle self-censorship? The sessions answering those questions and the Prix Voltaire award ceremony took congress delegates on an emotional rollercoaster.
IPA President, Michiel Kolman, spoke to the Copyright Clearance Center's Chris Kennealy in the run up to this year's International Publishers Congress.
Intellectual Property was a central feature of the programme at the 2018 IPA International Publishers Congress in New Delhi, including two fascinating sessions: Shaping the Future of Intellectual Property in Publishing and Responding to Copyright Challenges.
