Similarly, you may have heard about the unprecedented measures taken by the English government to protect and exploit the intellectual property and image rights associated with the 2012 Olympics Games in London, but do you know exactly what these measures comprise of and what we can learn from them? The purpose of our seminar is to bring you fully up to date with some of the latest developments and challenges in the digital media age thus putting you in the best position to advise your clients on the main issues arising in the fast-moving digital media industry.

We have lined up some very high profile speakers who will deliver dynamic and practical presentations. Lisbon is particularly renowned for its beauty, nightlife and food. These three elements set a unique backdrop for the first AIJA and IAEL joint event. The event will take place in the headquarters of the Portuguese Bar Association (known as “Salão Nobre”) located in Rossio, one of the areas of the city most visited by tourists. The social programme will combine the best of Lisbon’s culture, nightlife and gastronomy.
