Copyright in cyberspace, a debate in the UAB Planet Cycle

Xavier Salla, lecturer at the UAB Department of Journalism and lawyer specialising in data protection and ICT rights, took part in the ninth session of the Planeta UAB lecture series, an initiative of the Gabinete de Comunicación y Educación aimed at students of its master’s degrees.

This cycle of conferences is part of the project “Planet UAB: The journey to the other – equals in differences” organised by the UAB Cabinet during the academic year 2020-2021, with the support of the Fons de Solidaritat of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, which organised a series of activities and awareness-raising actions based on the concept of the UAB campus as a “planet” and which dealt with major issues such as the culture of peace, sustainability, the environment and interculturality, among others.

Students from the Master’s in Travel Journalism, the Master’s in Environmental Communication and the Master’s in Communication and Education participated in this ninth session with Xavier Salla, entitled ‘How to protect your content on the internet? Copyright and other legal issues in cyberspace‘. The director of the Obicex centre explained to the students how copyright law works on the internet and the different ways of protecting original content, emphasising the problems presented by ICTs in the digital environment.
