RIJDEC study on renewing cultural exemptions in the digital age

The International Network of Lawyers for the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (RIJDEC) presented the second part of its report on the implementation of the 2005 Convention at the forum in Mons to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Convention on October 25, 2015. The study looks at explicit references to the Convention in trade agreements to construct an overview and collect best practices. It also considers ways the distinctive nature of cultural products and services is accounted for in the digital era. It concludes with RIJDEC’s recommendations.

This Part 2 of the study is available (in French) on the Coalition française website.
