ECIPE Afternoon Seimar: Why did ACTA fail?

October 17 2012
Venue: ECIPE, Rue Belliard 4-6, B-1040 Brussels
Speakers: Professor Luciano Floridi, Hosuk Lee-Makiyama
Time: 14:00

ACTA (the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) was meant to enforce and harmonise IPR provisions in existing trade agreements within a wider group of countries, yet its implementation failed in Europe when European Parliament rejected this trade agreement earlier in July.

In the first of ECIPE seminars on the topic, Professor Luciano Floridi will contribute to the post-ACTA debate by proposing a specific analysis of the ethical reasons why ACTA failed. He will discuss how similar agreements can be evaluated from an ethical perspective, and what can be learnt from the failure of the European Union to ratify the agreement.

ECIPE welcomes you to an afternoon seminar with Professor Luciano Floridi, founder and director of the IEG, Oxford University Information Ethics research Group.

The seminar will be moderated by Hosuk Lee-Makiyama, director of ECIPE and former representative to the WTO and WIPO. Additional speakers TBC
