The International Literary and Artistic Association (ALAI) with GESAC set up a new European Authors’ Right Award. The next generation of IP lawyers is key to the future of authors’ right/ copyright which is why it is so important to encourage them to take an active interest in the topic and to have their voices heard.
This award is an opportunity for Masters’ students from around the world to write an article on authors’ rights within a European framework.
The ALAI European Authors’ Right Award - supported by GESAC will reward two students for their research work on a subject : (i) related to authors’ right
(ii) with a European dimension (including studies that involve a comparison with the EU system)
(iii) that includes aspects that could be of interest to the collective management of authors’ rights.
The competition is open to students of all nationalities (EU or non-EU). The prize will be awarded for the first time at a joint ALAI/GESAC ceremony in Brussels on 14 May 2019.
