FROM “PRESS CLUB” CYCLE: ETHICAL AND LEGISLATIVE ASPECTS OF COPYRIGHT

On December 2, the “Yerkir Media” TV channel broadcast another piece of the "Press Club" cycle on issues of journalistic ethics. This weekly “Press Club” cycle is produced by YPC with the support of Deutsche Welle Academy.

This piece was devoted to the ethical and legislative aspects of copyright. Particularly, the discussion focused on the amendments to the Law of the Republic of Armenia “On Copyright and Related Rights” regarding the use of media reports (see YPC Weekly Newsletter, September 27 – October 3, 2013). These amendments came into effect on November 9. The discussants of the talk show – Head of Copyright and related rights department at the RA Intellectual Property Agency Kristine Hambaryan and Director of "ArmenPress" news agency Aram Ananyan – presented their perspectives on this issue. Lawyer Ara Kazaryan, Media Initiatives Center (the former Internews) lawyer Movses Hakobyan, Lragir.am and 1in.am correspondent Siranush Papyan and the "Zhoghovurd" daily correspondent Arman Galoyan were the invited experts. YPC President Boris Navasardian hosted the show.   

The next “Press Club” will be broadcast by “Yerkir Media” on December 9, Monday, at 18.00 (with the rerun on December 14, Saturday, at 11.00).
