The commissions will join forces to discuss:

  • Software (as a service) contracts; 
  • Open innovation.

In addition, the IP/TMT commission will discuss a range of topics, such as:

  • Latest developments on Copyright
  • IP/TMT Litigation and fundamental rights;
  • Advertising in a digital age.

The T.R.A.D.E. Commission will hold its fourth annual conference in parallel. The program will deal with hot topics in retail, particularly retail tech, i.e. how technology influences retail and how IT impacts the agreements underlying retail business. Topics will revolve around digitalization / its impact on distribution, Geo-blocking and omni channel sales. The discussions will also address the European Commission report on the Geo-Blocking Regulation.

We look forward to welcoming you in Porto.
