In 2018, for the very first time in Germany, a court in Munich blocked access to an illegal website offering unlawful access to copyright-protected films. For this reason, this year’s producer brunch on 11.02.2019 will take place under the heading: “Restricted area, no access: Blocking instead of deletion as response to illegal online providers of film and television contents”.
After the introduction to the topic a keynote speech in English on website blocking in other EU countries by Parvez Siddiqui, INCOPRO, London will follow. Dr. Martin Schaefer will then moderate a panel discussion with the guests:
- Evelyn Ruttke, Managing Director, GVU,
- Judith Steinbrecher, Divisional Head Industrial Property Rights & Copyright, Bitkom e.V. and
- Dr Friedrich Radmann, Legal & Business Affairs, Constantin Film.
The event will begin at 10:00 a.m. (doors open 9:15 a.m) and will run until 11:45 a.m. A buffet will be provided as usual afterwards.
The producer brunch is a joint event organised by the law firm BOEHMERT & BOEHMERT, the Federal State of Brandenburg and media.connect brandenburg.
