    This panel gathers experts to the discuss the role of IP and copyright law in developing cultural industries. This discussion is increasingly important in the U.S. and worldwide. The role of IP and copyright protection in this context have been addressed before, but the scope of this protection is far from settled. As culture is never static, how this protection relates to the notion of cultural identities, aesthetics and creative industries is significant. Speakers will address questions such as: should IP and copyright protection be further introduced into the broad policies and management perspectives of all cultural industries? Could this protection assist in ensuring a more effective industry wide development with respect to the broadest set of cultural assets, including TCEs? And to what extent could artists and creators, and their managers, use traditional channels as well as new platforms in media technology to promote cultural industries?
