Cobblestone street in Trinidad, Cuba, UNESCO World Heritage City.
Intellectual property rights are an indispensable element in the protection of the culture of any country. Cuba is part of the international intellectual property system, albeit in a discreet way, in terms of copyright. There are several international litigations that Cuban authors have had to face, without much success. In this regard, Cuba is a legal curiosity for being a mix between the Spanish heritage and Soviet socialism. The prevalence of access to culture versus protection for the author poses several challenges to face, due to its obsolete norms. This study aims to address the history of the Cuban intellectual property system and its current reality.
Janny Carrasco Medina is a university professor of intellectual property at the FASF - Minas Gerais, Brazil. Her work is focused on copyright and cultural rights studies in Cuba.
This event is open for everyone to attend and will be held on zoom. Join us on Monday the 30th of August at 16:00 CET.
