EuroCham Cambodia, in association with the South-East Asia IP SME Helpdesk, is pleased to invite you to an interactive webinar on Intellectual Property in Arts & Culture: Cambodia's Accession to the Berne Convention on Tuesday, May 17th from 15:00-16:30 (GMT +7).

Building on a tradition of centuries filled with rich and world-famous cultural heritageCambodia is a country in full artistic and cultural development. With its booming arts and culture scene, the issue of protection of intellectual property rights in Cambodia is of paramount importance.

One of the latest additions to the arsenal of intellectual property protection in Cambodia is the Berne Convention for Literary and Artistic Works, which entered into force for Cambodia on 9 March 2022.

The Berne Convention sets out the basic principles that signatory states must guarantee in their copyright policies and legislation. It applies to “every production in the literary, scientific and artistic domain, whatever the mode or form of its expression". It provides creators such as authors, musicians, poets, painters etc. with the means to control how their works are used, by whom, and on what terms.

Learn more about this important new tool and what it means for Cambodia’s arts and culture scene in this exciting webinar, co-organised with the South-East Asia IP SME Helpdesk.

The webinar will consist of a presentation from Mr. Thea Pheng, Partner at Abacus IP & External Expert of the SEA IP SME Helpdesk on IP Legislation in Cambodia: a short overview of the legal framework and applicable international agreements. As well as a presentation on the protection of creative industries in Cambodia - how to make use of new tool (Berne Convention) by Mr. David Haskel, Parter at Abacus IP. There will be also an extensive Q&A session for the public to address questions with our panel.
