Attorney at Law & a specialist in Intellectual Property, LK
Mr. Dinal Philips – Attorney at Law & a specialist in Intellectual Property – delivered his presentation 'Copyright for information trade' at the 'Partners in Information Delivery' seminar organized by the University Librarians Association (ULA) of Sri Lanka held on 26 September 2008 at BMICH, Colombo 7. This is the text of his speech.
'Copyright' is a very much interested, but not comprehensively resolved topic in both legal and library professional arenas. This paper simply describes types of works protected by copyright, standards, procedure for getting protection, infringement, duration of rights, and international protection for the benefit of librarians - specially with respect to the Sri Lankan context.
