U.S. Copyright Office, WIPO Host Roundtables on International Copyright Education
Issue No. 897 - June 15, 2021
The U.S. Copyright Office and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) are hosting a yearlong virtual roundtable series on copyright education for youth enrolled in primary and secondary schools. The Roundtables on International Copyright Education: IP and Creativity for the Youth (RICE) will be held monthly starting June 15, 2021. The Office will post the agenda for each session on its website as it becomes available.
RICE provides invited government officials, education policymakers, and educators from around the world with an opportunity to share and discuss strategies and best practices for educating youth about copyright. The series seeks to strengthen collaborative networks among participants and across regions.
Following RICE’s conclusion, the Office and WIPO will design materials for educators who are active in developing educational strategies to enhance the understanding and appreciation of intellectual property.
